In this paper a computer vision system is proposed to detect risk factors of young children’s falls in the home environment and to produce actions to remove the factors. The system recognition tasks, clutter detection and children tracking, are defined in accordance with general suggestions which request a caregiver’s continuous supervision to prevent young children’s falls from the UK Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT). The current system uses only one commercial camera without any sensor or marker on the subject for practical purposes. This paper focuses on the system design and clutter detection. The algorithms for moving object and clutter detection have been developed, implemented and tested.
