Solutions for An Aging Population by IBM

IBM is pioneering sensors that monitor seniors’ homes in real timetemperature, carbon dioxide levels and much more and send the data to city workers, who can dispatch friends, family or emergency personnel as needed. This remote solution can keep a town’s social-services costs down as its population ages.

IBM tested the system in Bolzano, Italy, and had a great story to tell—one that stretched beyond a TV spot.
