The CareTeam project incorporates background environmental sensing to unobtrusively monitor and predict behaviour of those receiving care to help provide reassurance and detect changes in condition.

As part of the adult digital health support platform developed under CareTeam, the research proposes the introduction of soft warnings, based on the continuous evaluation of the occupancy behaviour, care conditions and the home environment.

Results have shown that the care needs of a person are key determinants of occupancy behaviour. The work is also integrating a probabilistic approach to the occupancy profiles and evaluating the merits of different machine learning approaches.
