Tag: Ambient Assistive Living

AAL (Ambient Assisted Living) has great potential for positively influencing the lives of many people. But impact so far has been less than hoped, partly due to fragmentation of research efforts and the lack of a standardised approach for developers. To address this, the AALOA (AAL Open Association) was launched.
The AAL Open Association is promoted by the partners of the European Integrated Projects PERSONA and universAAL and the discussion about its organization is currently coordinated by CNR-ISTI (Italy), Fraunhofer-IGD (Germany), ITACA-UPV (Spain), and SINTEF (Norway). The AALOA Manifesto defines the rationale and the purposes of the association. Today, the Manifesto is a dissemination effort of the EU projects MonAmI, OASIS, OsAmI-commons, PERSONA, SOPRANO, universAAL and WASP.

“Electronic Markets” has published a call for papers on Ambient Assisted Living for a forthcoming issue of its “focus theme section”. The main objective is to answer various questions from a networked business point of view. It aims at concepts, methods, tools, services, and cases addressing the socio-technical as well as the socio-economic impact of ambient assisted living solutions.
