Abstract

The ACTIVAGE project is a multi-center Large Scale Pilot that has as main objective the demonstration that the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm plays a fundamental role in deploying cost-effective and sustainable solutions for ageing well and independent living of European senior citizens. In this work, we present the approach that is currently adopted in one of the centers of the pilot, the Madrid Deployment Site (DS), to derive, from the main objective, meaningful values for end-users and stakeholders of the solutions.
