Workshop on Internet of Things for Ambient Assisted Living – IEEE GLOBECOM 2015
Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) encompasses technical systems, infrastructures, and services to support elderly people in their daily routine, to allow an independent and safe lifestyle, as long as possible, via the seamless integration of information and communication technologies within homes and residences. Effective AAL solutions require appropriate ICT algorithms, architectures and platforms, that cannot leave out of consideration the development of new and innovative approaches, particularly in the area of pervasive and mobile systems. The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm is leading to smart objects being capable of identifying, locating, sensing and connecting, and thus opening possibilities for new forms of communication between people and things, and things themselves. This workshop aims to investigate the potential benefits gained when specializing the IoT for AAL, to avoid redundancy and leverage the harmonization of the technological approaches towards an increased Quality of Life for the current and future aging populations.
