It reports literature on AAL released given that 2007 and describes the most positive aspects and components of goods or structures that interlink and enhance new or latest applied sciences and structures.

This textual content:

  • Provides vast assurance of the purposes, software program, and knowledge administration for AAL
  • Contains an summary of the recommendations regarding AAL
  • Includes a complete assessment of the state-of-the-art on pervasive and cellular overall healthiness (m-health) applications
  • Describes a suite of tasks and paintings with medical relevance in AAL
  • Introduces a framework involved in the tracking and information of aged folks residing alone
  • Discusses a potential research on technological platforms for individuals with cognitive disabilities

Ambient Assisted Living

highlights applied sciences that adapt to the person instead of the consumer adapting to the expertise. this article proposes applied sciences which could allow assisted folks to stay independently for longer and decrease the necessity for long term care.

Context Awareness Abstracts describing context awareness technologies were subclassified into (1) environment (n = 18), (2) location/tracking (n = 32), (3) identity management (n = 12), (4) identity management and location (n = 8), (5) detection of specific events and situations (n = 18), (6) activity/interaction (n = 41), (7) human behavior (n = 25), (8) emotions (n = 10), and (9) reasoning (n = 82). As an attempt to illustrate what is being done in the area of context awareness, we will give some examples from the analyzed articles.

Design and Development Methodologies Despite advances in software engineering methods and tools, understanding what software components do and ensuring that they work well together remains difficult. Examples of methodologies described in the revised articles included a model-driven development Characterization and Classification of Existing AAL Systems 19 approach that combines unified modeling language (UML) and ontology techniques for the specification of component properties and development platforms that support component discovery, compatibility checking and deployment, and designing of digital ecosystems that integrate a number of different and complementary technologies, including agent-based and self-organizing systems, ontologies, swarm intelligence, AmI, data mining, and genetic algorithms (Floch et al.
