Research information:

His research interests are focused on the use of sensors to facilitate Aging in Place. After spending many years working on bed-based sensors to monitor physical well-being, such as transfers out of bed and breathing, Frank is now focused more on cognition. Sensors in the home can monitor activities of daily living and soon artificial intelligence will be able to help cue a person.
