Abstract : This thesis is a CIFRE thesis between LORIA and the MEDETIC Company and focuses on the design of telehomecare system for the elderly. In addition to the design of a remote surveillance architecture "Vill' age ®" based on networks of heterogeneous sensor (home automation, IEEE802.15.4/Zigbee, Wifi, Bluetooth), thesis has contributed essentially on the proposal of a clustering and routing protocol in the network of wireless sensors with an approach to fuzzy logic, and of a middleware for the collection and processing of data from sensors with the management of the quality of service as a special feature. A first platform was developed at Colmar (MEDETIC) and a second who is more complete is under development at LORIA ( By using this system, MEDeTIC, offers a new concept of smart homes for the senior citizens, named in French "Maisons Vill'Âge". The first housing schemes are being built in 2 departments of France. A flat is entirely equipped to act as a demonstrator and as laboratory of research and development. The system is designed for the elderly who wish to spend their old age in their own home, because of its potential to increase independence and quality of life. This would not only benefit the elderly who want to live in their own home, but also the national health care system by cutting costs significantly. Based on this PhD thesis, MPIGate, a Multiprotocol Interface and Gateway for healthcare networks, has been developed. MPIGate was awarded in the competition of the Ministry of Higher Education and Research and OSEO 2010.
