Abstract

The damage of safety accidents at home can be minimized by preventing accidents in advance as well as by coping with the accidents promptly through the help of safety management system. In this paper, we identify several services to prevent and cope with the accidents that may occur at home by leveraging sensors and wireless network technology available at home network environments. In order to provide these services, we propose a context-aware system for safety management at home. The proposed system awares the dangerous situations through the information collected by the sensors in home network environment. The proposed system tries to not only prevent the accidents but also to cope with the situations using the information of rescue targets and the location where the accident occurs. We evaluate the appropriateness of sensors by implementing the proposed environments. Through OPNET simulation experiments, we also measure the amount of network traffic in order to confirm that the bandwidth of IEEE 802.15.4 is enough for the proposed system. Finally, we determine more appropriate wireless data transmission mechanism with respect to the end-to-end delay and battery consumption for the proposed system.
