Abstract

We propose a method for detecting pre-accident situations of infants (preschool children) in a room. Unforeseen accidents among infants mainly occur in relation to objects in the room, e.g., falls from chairs, burns caused by heaters, accidental ingestion. Accordingly, the proposed method recognizes the states (positions, postures, and movements) of each infant in the room from a video image, determines the relations between the infant and specified objects (places) by referring to a room model, and then detects pre-accident situations of the infant, such as approaching dangerous areas, getting off balance at critical places, and touching unsafe objects.
