Paper focuses on a query-based framework for the care of older adults in a smart home setting. The researchers’ objective was to link assessment parameters to the resident so as to improve query results. A sketch of a model of quality degradation of a sensor-based data source is provided, as the researchers hope to incorporate the model into a query-based framework. Activities such as sleeping and gait analysis are considered in the framework, as the authors contend that this research is the first step toward creating database and data mining techniques to support the automatic monitoring of older adults living in their homes.
