AALIANCE Ambient Assisted Living Roadmap (Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments)

AALIANCE Ambient Assisted Living Roadmap (Ambient Intelligence and Smart Environments)

Description

In this publication a roadmap on Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is presented. It is produced by the European Ambient Assisted Living Innovation Alliance, or AALIANCE project, funded under the 7th European Framework Programme. In the first chapter new developing trends in AAL are looked at from different perspectives and barriers to their implementation are discussed. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the application domains; AAL4persons (chapter 2), [email protected] (chapter 3), [email protected] (chapter 4) and a detailed presentation of the enabling technologies - sensing, reasoning, acting, interaction and communication - (chapter 5). The final chapter presents a way to set up an AAL system (chapter 6). This resulted in a document that can be considered as the technology roadmap for AAL.IOS Press is an international science, technical and medical publisher of high-quality books for academics, scientists, and professionals in all fields. Some of the areas we publish in: -Biomedicine -Oncology -Artificial intelligence -Databases and information systems -Maritime engineering -Nanotechnology -Geoengineering -All aspects of physics -E-governance -E-commerce -The knowledge economy -Urban studies -Arms control -Understanding and responding to terrorism -Medical informatics -Computer Sciences
