PhD Thesis Topic: Analysis and Classification of motion patterns of people with dementia based on GPS trajectories

Abstract: The demographic change and ageing in Europe will lead to a growing number of older people suffering from various diseases. One of the challenges in this context will be the rising number of patients suffering from dementia. Currently, so-called “improved mobility safeguarding assistance services” are offered: however, these are limited to actively raising an alert (i.e., electronic panic buttons). The idea therefore is to implement methods for classifying and monitoring motion patterns of people suffering from dementia in order to be able to automatically identify risky situations. We argue that with these methods being integrated in mobility safeguarding assistance services people suffering from dementia will have the possibility to live longer self-determined at home. In addition, their environment – including relatives – will be less worried.
