This paper presents the design and implementation of a dual-camera sensor network that can be used as a memory assistant tool for assisted living. Our system performs energy-efficient object detection and recognition of commonly misplaced objects. The novelty in our approach is the ability to tradeoff between recognition accuracy and computational efficiency by employing a combination of low complexity but less precise color histogram-based image recognition together with more complex image recognition using SIFT descriptors. In addition, our system can seamlessly integrate feedback from the user to improve the robustness of object recognition. Experimental results reveal that our system is computation-efficient and adaptive to slow changes of environmental conditions.
