The government of Seoul aforementioned that it will over double the number of elderly people taking advantage of its on-line care service supported web of Things (IoT) technology.
The metropolitan government last year launched the IoT service for 2,800 households to take better care of senior citizens living alone and in want of constant attention and care.
Thanks to the electronic observation system, municipal officers reclaimed several lone and pathologic elders affected by exhaustion and alternative disorders.
This year, the amount of Seoul households with the IoT-enabled electronic observation system can increase to 5,000, the government proclaimed.
The number of beneficiaries of the service can bit by bit increase to 12,500 households by 2022, it added.
In the IoT care system, a device is put within the home of a senior citizen who lives alone to find motion, temperature, humidness, and illumination, and therefore the data gathered from the device is shipped in real-time to the relevant offices and officers.
If there’s no movement for an explicit amount or abnormal changes in heat, humidness and light-weight area unit detected, the welfare official responsible can take emergency measures, like a business the house or 119, the fireplace and automobile emergency variety, to elicit help.
