Nowadays, smart devices have invaded the market and consequently our daily life. Their use in smart home contexts, to improve the quality of life, specially for elderly and people with special needs, is getting stronger and stronger. Therefore, many systems based on smart applications and intelligent devices have been developed, for example, to monitor people’s environmental contexts, help in daily life activities, and analyze their health status. However, most of the existing solutions present disadvantages regarding accessibility, as they are costly, and applicability, due to lack of generality and interoperability. This paper is intended to tackle such drawbacks by presenting SHPIA, a multi-purpose smart home platform for intelligent applications. It is based on the use of a low-cost Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-based devices, which “transforms” objects of daily life into smart objects. The devices allow collecting and automatically labelling different type of data to provide indoor monitoring and assistance. SHPIA is intended, in particular, to be adaptable to different home-based application scenarios, like for example, human activity recognition, coaching systems, and occupancy detection and counting.

Abstract

Nowadays, smart devices have invaded the market and consequently our daily life. Their use in smart home contexts, to improve the quality of life, specially for elderly and people with special needs, is getting stronger and stronger. Therefore, many systems based on smart applications and intelligent devices have been developed, for example, to monitor people’s environmental contexts, help in daily life activities, and analyze their health status. However, most of the existing solutions present disadvantages regarding accessibility, as they are costly, and applicability, due to lack of generality and interoperability. This paper is intended to tackle such drawbacks by presenting SHPIA, a multi-purpose smart home platform for intelligent applications. It is based on the use of a low-cost Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-based devices, which “transforms” objects of daily life into smart objects. The devices allow collecting and automatically labelling different type of data to provide indoor monitoring and assistance. SHPIA is intended, in particular, to be adaptable to different home-based application scenarios, like for example, human activity recognition, coaching systems, and occupancy detection and counting. The SHPIA platform is open source and freely available to the scientific and industrial community.
