Abstract

This paper discusses the development of a Sleep Walking Prevention (SWP) system, designed to prevent sleep walkers from suffering any dangerous consequences. It sounds an alarm if an incidence of sleep walking is detected. The SWP system also alerts a friend or family member in case the alarm alone was unsuccessful in awakening the sleep walker so that help can arrive before any harm befalls the sleepwalker or others. It does this by sending out a text message to the caregiver’s cell phone. The sleep walking prevention alarm system makes use of passive infrared sensors for monitoring the status of a potential sleep walker. A system log is also in place to keep detailed records of sleep walking activities and patterns for reference purposes. This information can be very helpful to the consulting psychiatrist or doctor.
