Fall Detection in Mobile Applications

innovative DPDM approach

Today, a reliable Fall Detection integrated in Telecommunication Mobiles is not available, at least not with necessary quality and trustworthiness. Fall Detection as always-on-function must not reduce the battery’s standby time and must be executable with moderate processor performance and memory. The classics as KFD (Kernel-Fisher-Discriminates) which use extraction of properties via Hilbert space are by far to complex and computational intensive for being integrated in the limited available environment of a mobile device. Moreover KFD discriminates do not deliver reliable verdicts “fall detected” in the face of diversity of falls Wanted: Mathematical model and its numeric algorithm which can be integrated in mobile devices (DECT, GSM/LTE) with Ultra Low Power consumption, but even so can work and detect “falls” reliably.

The recently developed DPDM (Dosch Probability Density Model) can be such candidate. DPDM has been integrated into DECT device DA1432 indePendant™ and subject to numerous field trials.

Dosch has been Executive Vice President of ROHDE&SCHWARZ and Co-founder of DOSCH&AMAND. He has been intensively involved in the standardisation of GSM and DECT. Dosch has invented ETSI Standard DPRS (DECT Packet Radio Service) whose transport layer “long slot” is today’s DECT Standard for HDVoice. In the 80ies Dosch became well-kown due for his numeric algorithm to simulate electronic circuit design. His time-domain analysis of vRLC circuitries has been implemented in CAD Analysis programs as SuperSpice, AnaCraft, a.o.
