Assisted living technologies can be of great importance for taking care of elderly people and helping them to live independently. We propose a monitoring system designed to be as unobtrusive as possible, by exploiting computer vision techniques and visual sensors such as RGB cameras.
In this work we address the problem of optimal sensor placement for a given region and task. An important issue in designing sensor arrays is the appropriate placement of the sensors such that they achieve a predefined goal.
In this project we shall consider the problem of deploying attention to subsets of the video streams for collating the most relevant data and information of interest related to a given task. We formalize this monitoring problem as a foraging problem.
