In this article we present an integrated system the domestic care of elderly people which is being developed within the RoboCare project.\ud The system is composed of a network of sensors placed in the environment to reconstruct a global situation and a set of robotic and software agents for controlling the environment. Within this framework, the two main components that we describe in this article are: (1) a people and robot\ud localization and tracking system that exploits stereo vision in order to monitor the positions of robots and persons; (2) a supervision framework that is in charge of collecting information about the distributed sensors and monitoring the activities of the assisted person. This article shows how, starting from these two ingredients, we are developing a system prototype for an “intelligent” environment, which acts as a global monitor surveying an assisted elderly person and reacts to the stimuli coming from the environment in order to control its evolution
