An Embedded Navigation System for Aiding People with Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, irreversible brain disease that destroys memory and thinking skills. It is a part of dementia, a loss of memory and intellect that interferes with the daily life activities of Alzheimer patients. They even forget what they are doing and what they want to do. In this paper an attempt is made to provide solution for the memory part of the problem. This paper is aimed to design program based hardware navigation system, which helps the people with Alzheimer disease by alerting them if they are not moving in the predefined path. For example, if a person wants to go to the college and he goes somewhere else, then this system will inform him with proper message. If the person is performing the intended task, then the system just monitors it. This prototype design can be implemented on 8051 microcontroller using GPS module.
