Abstract

The average age growing of the urban population, with an increasing number of 65+ citizens, is calling for the cities to provide global services specifically geared to elderly people. In this context, collecting data from the elderly’s environment and his/her habits and making them available in a structured way to third parties for analysis, is the first step towards the realization of innovative user-centric services. This paper presents a citywide general IoT-based sensing infrastructure and a data management layer providing some REST and Linked Open Data Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that collect and present data related to elderly people. In particular, this architecture is used by the H2020 City4Age project to help geriatricians in identifying the onset of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) disease.
