Fall Detection System Using Accelerometer and Gyroscope Based on Smartphone




Most of people likes living independently at home. Some activity in our daily life is prone to have some accidents, such as falls. Falls can make people in fatal conditions, even death. A prototype of fall detection system using accelerometer and gyroscope based on smartphone is presented in this paper. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors are embedded in smartphone to get the result of fall detection more accurately. Automatic call as an alert will be sent to family members if someone using this application in fatal condition and need some help. This research also can distinguish condition of people between falls and activity daily living. Several scenarios were used in these experiments. The result showed that the proposed system could successfully record level of accuracy of the fall detection system till 93.3% in activity daily living and error detected of fall was 2%.
