Ambient Assisted Living

The aim of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is the connection of new technologies and services with the social environment in order to support people’s daily life. Such technology can be found in home automation components, robotics or in ubiquitous computing. AAL services can be integrated into daily life of the user and provide intelligent support.

One important field of AAL focuses on the support of healthcare and everyday life for the elderly or disabled people, helping them to deal with various situations in which they would usually need assistance from others. As a result, this people are enabled to live in their familiar home environment as long as possible and gain autonomy and independence.
