Abstract


In recent years, people who fall or die by heat stroke has increased. In particular, about 80 percent of deaths from heat stroke are elderly people over the age of 65. One factor of heat stroke is that people do not know limit point of the activities in bad environment. Therefore, we propose a new system to prevent heat stroke using acceleration sensor and smartphone. By using this system, everyone will be able to make moderate outdoor activities. By measuring temperature, humidity, and momentum, this system estimates the risk of heat stroke using the fuzzy reasoning.

Keywords


heat stroke, smartphone, fuzzy reasoning.
