- ItemAcceptance of the Technologies Deployed for the Development of Online Public Services and Systems Used by Elderly(IEEE, 2019) Alexandru, Adriana; Coardoș, Dora; Tudora, EleonoraAccepting ICT-based online public services is an important topic of research. The paper addresses models of adoption and acceptance of new technologies with reference to the seniors. These models are compared in terms of acceptability factors. An analysis of the challenges and obstacles regarding the acceptance of technologies by elderly people is presented. In addition, as a case study on the technologies, the acceptance of the mobile phone by the older people and the Senior Technology Acceptance and Adoption Model are presented. Finally, a group of determinants related to the acceptance by elderly people of mobile phone is extracted.
- ItemAnalysis of the DESI and SNADR indicators’ evolution for information society(ICI, 2020-06-30) Tudora, Eleonora; Gheorghe-Moisii, Maria; Tîrziu, EugeniaThe evolution of the digital economy and society is reflected in an overall increase in the economic efficiency and improvement in all areas. It is essential that the progress of the digital society is constantly monitored for a vision of the implementation of the strategies pursued. This article presents an analysis of the digital society from the perspective of the priorities established by the National Strategy for the Digital Agenda 2020 following the stage of digitalization of the Romanian economy in relation to European trends. The paper presents the evolution of the Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) indicators and of the National Strategy on Digital Agenda for Romania (SNADR) indicators between 2016 and 2019, highlighting the situation in Romania, providing a theoretical basis for strategic guidelines, as well as a comparation between DESI and SNADR indicators.
- ItemHealthy Ageing Supported by Smart Home Technologies(IBIMA, 2020) Tîrziu, Eugenia; Tudora, Eleonora; Gheorghe-Moisii, MariaPopulation ageing is a global social phenomenon that requires a better and faster implementation of advances in smart home technologies to create age-appropriated services and environments. Smart homes, which incorporate sensors, actuators and environmental and portable medical devices as well as modern communication technologies, can enable continuous and remote monitoring of the health and well-being of the elderly. Health monitoring is in line with current trends in the medical and social systems. The case study included in this paper presents a system for monitoring and assessing the health of the elderly in an intelligent environment. The major concern, in this sense, is to ensure optimal access to smart home technology for the elderly, aiming at the impact on quality of life, health and social involvement.
- ItemIoT-Based Healthcare Remote Monitoring Platform for Elderly with Fog and Cloud Computing(IEEE, 2019) Alexandru, Adriana; Coardoș, Dora; Tudora, EleonoraIn the context of a fast aging population and of its increasing need for healthcare and assistance, ubiquitous usage of Internet of Things (IoT)-based smart applications can mitigate the consequential social burden. Connected sensors and devices inside the seniors' home produce a significant amount of data about them and their daily activities. IoT and Big Data Analytics (BDA) are an important mean to derive knowledge and support for improving the life conditions for the older adults by increasing the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) for accomplish this goal. IoT analytics can aid in personalizing applications that benefit both elderly people and the ever-growing industries that need adapt their offer to the consumer's profiles. This paper presents a new platform that enables innovative analytics on IoT captured data from smart residences of elderly people. A solution based on the use of fog nodes and cloud system is suggested in order to afford data-driven services and to manage the complexity and provision of the necessary resources for online and offline data processing, storage, and analysis. The requirements and the design of the platform architecture are underlined. We propose an architecture of a platform based on fog computing nodes coupled with cloud computing that offers an efficient near real time processing of the big data resulted from IoT system that provides insights and data processing and analysis facilities into cloud. This integrated design has an important impact on time sensitive applications by addressing the latency issues of cloud.
- ItemMapping the Behavioral Change Evaluation of Elderly with Mild Cognitive Impairment in a Smart Environment(IEEE, 2020) Ianculescu, Marilena; Alexandru, Adriana; Tudora, Eleonora; Neagu, GabrielMild cognitive impairment (MCI) can occur while a person is getting old and it is associated with more serious cognitive deteriorations than the normal ageing-related ones. As it may involve a significant decrease in the quality of life, health status and independence of the elderly, the early diagnosis and a personalized assistance become crucial in this ageing worldwide context. Current and emerging technologies provide the needed support for implementing appropriate new models of healthcare delivery. This paper highlights how RO-SmartAgeing system, which aims to provide customized monitoring and assistance for an elderly in his home, is designed for addressing a particular health condition as MIC. The associated smart environment is presented, together with the data flow chart and architecture, with an emphasis on MIC approach.
- ItemTraceability Technologies in the Agri-food Sector(ICI Publishing House, 2019-06-30) Tudora, Eleonora; Tîrziu, EugeniaWith the globalization of the food industry, traceability has become an important factor for the agri-food sector. Therefore, it is important to have a reliable identification and tracking system to guarantee the safety and quality of food that reaches consumers. However, the current tracking technology market is restrained by many factors such as high cost, skepticism about efficiency and technology responsibility. This article provides an overview of the relevant food traceability technologies available on the market and a description of their characteristics. In order to contribute to the development and implementation of appropriate technologies, the concepts and implications of traceability in the agri-food sector must be well understood by consumers. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the importance of traceability technologies in the agri-food sector.
