Abstract

AAL - Ambient Assisted Living. When the topic “AAL” comes up, everybody thinks first of fascinating technology that is unobtrusively integrated in “smart home environments” and supports people in their daily lives. This thinking is surely be driven by the ongoing development of impressive services that was and is still provided by the AAL research community as well as the growing number of companies that bring these technology to market.
