Using technology to allow seniors to age-in-place

3 May 2021

SHINESeniors project is an initiative by the SMU-TCS iCity Lab, a collaboration between SMU and Tata Consultancy Services. It features an Assisted Living Platform which enables seniors’ homes to be equipped with unobtrusive technology that can monitor their activities. If data patterns diverge from their regular behaviour, the system can alert caregivers, who can then step in to provide necessary support. This system aims to help seniors who are living alone to age-in-place. Dr Tan Hwee Pink, SMU-TCS iCity Lab’s former Academic Director pointed out that using unobtrusive technology, seniors living alone will not feel they are being monitored, it also provides a sort of safety net.
