Google’s Patent for Radar-Based Fall Detection System

Google has filed a patent for a fall detection system that could be used to help the elderly and disabled. The system would use radar waves to detect falls and could be integrated into Google’s Nest Hub smart displays.

Fall detection is a feature that is currently available on many smartwatches and fitness trackers. It allows users to call for help in the event of a fall. However, these devices need to be worn and charged, which can be difficult for some people.

Google’s system would not require users to wear any devices. It would use radar waves to detect falls and then send an alert to a designated emergency contact.

The system would work by using a radar sensor to track the movement of a person in a room. If the sensor detects a sudden change in movement, it would trigger an alert. The alert would then be sent to the emergency contact, who could then call for help.

Google’s system could be a valuable tool for helping to keep the elderly and disabled safe. It could also be used to help people who are at risk of falls, such as pregnant women and people with certain medical conditions.

 

Benefits of Google’s radar-based fall detection system:

Does not require users to wear any devices

Can be used to detect falls in any room

Can send alerts to multiple emergency contacts

Can be used to help people who are at risk of falls
