Abstract

Nowadays more and more elderly people need support in daily activities. This is due to the increase of cognitive diseases and other conditions which lead the elderly to not being self-sufficient. Considering this, providing an Ambient Assisted Living system could improve significantly people life quality and could support caregivers' tasks. The combination of Ambient Assisted Living systems and information and communication technologies achieve this purpose perfectly. They exploit internet of things and artificial intelligence paradigms to make daily challenges easier for people with neurodegenerative diseases. This work melds technologies mentioned above providing a smart system for elderly to manage goods and fill in shopping lists. It was possible using software, hardware, and cloud systems combined with a neural network aimed to recognise products. The proposed system has been validated both from a functional point of view through a proof-of-concept and quantitatively by a performance analysis of its components.
