This paper presents an experiment for monitoring the behaviour of dependent elderly people living in a retirement home in rural area. The surveillance consists to monitor the physical activities of the elderly in order to detect automatically risk situations such as fall, high agitation or any change in behaviour. Monitoring is carried out both locally via a wireless multisensor system and remotely via a satellite communication link. This approach aims to associate advanced wireless technologies with health monitoring application.
