DIANA project

Digital Intelligent Assistant for Nursing Applications

The care of people with cognitive impairment is demanding and requires a high level of personnel and nursing commitment. It is therefore of the utmost importance to develop solutions that can support caregivers in their daily work at an unprecedented level. The project DIANA improves the life and safety of mild to severely cognitive impaired persons 65+ while assisting nurses and care givers by providing novel solutions for action and behaviour recognition.

The enabling technology will be AI powered 3D sensors with embedded analytic algorithms. The metadata provided by these sensors will be seamlessly integrated into the nurses working routine and will free valuable time for personalized care. For mild to medium impaired persons these data will also be used to provide a virtual assistant which can guide through certain activities of daily living. A first activity where this will be tested focuses on toileting (personal hygiene), where hardly any technologies exist. DIANA has the unique goal of increasing people’s autonomy and digitizing nursing assistance in this area.

The goals of this project are:

    1. optimizing the nursing process by relieving nursing staff of routine tasks which could be managed by an AI powered digital assistant
    2. fusion of the video management (VMS) world with privacy protecting 3D sensors
    3. Utilizing the Milestone Xprotect VMS as middleware
