Abstract: The present paper presents some of the results obtained by the research team of the project “Noninvasive monitoring system and health assessment of the elderly in an intelligent environment (ROSmartAgeing)”, within the Core Program. Worldwide, multiple systems for monitoring the health of the elderly have been developed. Based on the analysis of the literature in the field, the author briefly presents concepts related to IoT, protocols and benefits of IoT technology, the impact on the elderly, assistive technologies for monitoring current activities and lifestyle. These are the support for the development of a system of care for the elderly by monitoring the current activities and lifestyle.
