Abstract

Guaranteeing ubiquity and appropriateness of security and monitoring services provision to the users constitutes a priority issue for the authorities. This paper presents an innovative Wireless Personal Area Network architecture that takes advantage of some of the features provided by Intelligent Environments -large number of devices, heterogeneous networks and mobility enhancement- in order to adapt and personalise ambient conditions to the user profile. This system is based on image processing and its main aim is to provide an AAL solution that is integrated with other control devices for the home to make everyday tasks easier for users.
