The main objective of the PREVENT project is to lower the number and consequences of hospital acquired infections through the development of a cyber-physical system that monitors the clinical ambient, staff, patients and the procedures being carried out in real time.

In order to fulfill the project’s main objective, the consortium have identified the following operational objectives:

  • Design, develop and validate a number of hardware devices that allow room-level monitoring of persons together with wireless sensor systems that enable the detection of relevant actions for preventing hospital infections

  • Design, develop and validate the required software components to manage and configure the system, as well as the rules that govern the infection prevention and contact network components

  • Evaluate the prototype implementation using a number of scenarios and indicators relevant for the clinical environment
