Abstract: Nowadays after the revolution of robotics in industries, the healthcare and position monitoring systems became more and more demanding. The target position monitoring of an object will help for the better navigation as well as control of systems. One of the fields, which today use this kind of tracking, is the patient control like Alzheimer patients or handicap people. This paper is about an Adriano based positioning and healthcare system developed to help Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers to track patients and monitor their vital signs remotely. The result of the system and the case study obtained shows the capability of the system to handover this task and use as the helper for Alzheimer patients in various situations.
