Ambient assisted living (AAL) facilitates the daily routines of elderly people, particularly those who have clinical difficulties or physical limitations. The latest technologies like distributed compuring,internet of things (IoT) and machine learning pave the ground for the creation of an effective automated tracker which aids elder citizens to live independently. The suggested system is attempted to design a wearable that monitors the blood glucose level through sweat. To achieve high accuracy, the proposed system uses ambient sensing and deep learning based techniques. It places a strong emphasis on calculating the health index by taking into account numerous disease-related characteristics or vitals such as heart rate, blood pressure, SpO2, blood glucose level, respiration rate, sweat rate, uric acid, and temperature. From the wearable device designed the vital signs are gathered, further environmental sensors and camera fixed around the person continually monitors the behavioral pattern along with physiological signals. This ensures the improved accuracy of health state prediction from its conventional models in place. The key advantage of this device is that it may be held and operated anyplace without interrupting their day-to-day tasks because the device is to be cheap, reliable and speedy.
