The ability to automatically detect the location
of an elder within their own home is a significant enabler
of remote elder supervision and interaction applications. This
location information is typically generated via a myriad of
sensors throughout the home environment. Even with high
sensor redundancy, there are still situations where traditional
elder monitoring systems are unable to resolve the location
of the elder. This work develops a minimal infrastructure
radio-frequency localisation system for long-term elder location
tracking. An RFID room-labelling technique is employed and
with it, the localisation system developed in this work is shown
to exhibit superior performance to more traditional localisation
systems in realistic long-term deployments.
