Project: Ambient Assisted Living User Interfaces

Acronym AALuis (Reference Number: aal-2010-3-070)
Duration 01/07/2011 - 01/07/2014
Project Topic 1. Challenges AALuis will facilitate the connection of different services to different user interfaces and enable users of AAL systems to use more services in their preferred way. AALuis will improve: -older people’s access, acceptance, trust and use of services applying the most usable, accessible interface for the individual user -user interfaces and usability of devices by creating a global repository of user profiles based on Personas, using a standardized description of user interaction -the customization to individual needs by giving the user freedom of choice regarding interfaces and service selection from platforms -the integration of new ICT based solutions by using common standards and APIs and demonstrate the integration by adding user interfaces and services developed within the project 2.Target groups AALuis user interface layer will bring benefits to 2 groups of end-users: A) elderly people living independently, having at least one chronically disease that needs regular medication, B) elderly people living at home, needing mobile care services at least 3 times a week. Furthermore it will bring benefits for carers, care organisations and AAL system developers. 3.Technology The AALuis user interface layer will be provided as open source, usable with existing (open) middleware platforms (e.g. mPower, universAAL) and powering the future exploitation of commercial services. Existing services from existing platforms will be applied and new ones developed (depending on outcomes of the requirements analysis): smart home control, day-time and medication services. New user interfaces are developed using Multi Touch, Set-Tob boxes, mobile platforms and avatars. 4.Business model: Will be developed under the lead of Verklizan (active in 11 EU countries) in close cooperation with user organisations and foster the exploitation shortly after project end. 5.End users: Are involved by 2 user organisations contributing to requ. analysis and field trials
