"Our main work is creating technology for healthcare, especially for the elderly. Using smart homes, phones, wearables, and in-situ sensors, our technology is applied to patients with dementia, or obesity. We are also performing research for smart cities of the future. In particular, this work focuses on improving services and ensuring safety of smart cities."
