Taiwan has transformed into an aged society in 2018. It is estimated that it will enter the super-aged society by 2026. In the near future, half of Taiwan’s population will be senior citizens. However, in many rural and mountain areas, there is a lack of adequate lighting. It is also a problem for some elderly people with limited mobility to use the toilet in the middle of the night. Turning on the lights has an effect on sleep. But turning off the lights is also a safety hazard. GUANG-ZHANG is a smart light stick designed for the elderly. It has a variety of smart chips such as sensors, satellite positioning and the Internet of Things.
