MIDS Capstone Project Spring 2019

SoundCare (formerly SoundFlux)

SoundCare is a sound-based fall detection system that uses a deep learning model trained from simulated human falls along with millions of open source sounds, to provide effective, low-cost, unintrusive, and privacy-sensitive peace of mind for the elderly and their loved ones.

We have created an end-to-end solution covering:

  • Low cost edge device (non-wearable) for real-time fall detection and response
  • State-of-the-art Deep Learning model to classify fall events from spectrogram representation of audio
  • Inference done on the edge (no sensitive data transferred to the cloud)
  • Unique dataset of simulated falls, collected using a lifelike jointed 165 lb. rescue manikin with human weight distribution
  • Cloud portal to manage notifications, and see past fall detection events
