Next, it recognizes the number by fuzzy inference. Finally, it evaluates the gas consumption by interpolation of the lacked or unsuccessfully recognized numbers. The experimental result shows that this system successfully identified the gas consumption in the various conditions and shows high recognition rate in 24 hours measurement in real situation. These facts show the system is available for elderly home alone to care the life through the gas consumption monitoring.
