Abstract

The multiple cylindrical model to estimate urinary volume using image sensors without collecting urine in to the cup has been proposed. However, it was not supposing that the measurement is performed on a western style toilet. So, it is necessary to devise a way to embed an image sensor into a western style toilet where it can keep the geometric parallelism of the multiple cylindrical model. In this study, we constructed an environment where a multiple cylindrical model can be applied by using a raising toilet seat in a western style toilet. And we confirmed the accuracy of estimation of liquid flow rate using simulated urination.
