Abstract--This paper presents an application of a service-based
architecture to pervasive monitoring of the elderly using ambient
and wearable sensors. The design consideration of the model
addresses heterogeneous computing and network resource
utilization, allowing inter-operability and supporting dynamic
environments to achieve system wide resource optimization. An
application of this architecture is presented for assessing the
activities of daily living, which is the basis for pervasive sensing
for elderly care.
Keywords: Sensor networks; services; activity; elderly care
