Abstract(in English) For low birth rate, it is desirable to develop automatic observation record making for nursery nurse and parents by using infant location data. Parents may feel uncomfortable, however, if such electromagnetic waves or ultrasonic waves are used to apply the infants. This paper proposes the new position detection by a passive sensor without using electromagnetic waves or ultrasonic waves, considering the application to the infant education field. The proposed system employs LSI accelerometers and TV animated image processing techniques. Each infant location is analyzed by the TV signal processing, and the each name of the infant is decided with the pattern matching between the TV image processing results and the accelerometer data. Experimental results show that pattern matching is successful by giving a marker to the infant. The identical marker can be given to each infant and it is advantageous as it can be handled easily and used generally in the infant education field.
