Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The aim of this chapter is to present the Ambient Assisted Living/Enhanced Living Environment (AAL/ELE) platform architecture that is an open system for internetworking and defines a provision of services to the citizens. The work is describing the framework, main hierarchical layers, common and specific services and applications, important functionality, possible technologies, supported protocols and common interfaces that will allow interoperability between already existing and newly designed platforms.The described platform is not a single product in the cloud but generic specification of many existing platforms and their possible extended internetworked versions. The chapter identifies main platform building blocks and is not limited to sensor networks, wire and wireless communication infrastructure for AAL services, requirement analysis, stakeholders' profiling, protocols, platform analysis algorithms, Quality of Service, Quality of Experience analyses, capacity planning, data models for medical/personal data acquisition, processing algorithms, user interaction interfaces, end-user testing, mobile AAL/ELE, web-based, cloud-based AAL/ELE applications as well as AAL as a Service (AALaaS) and ELE as a Service (ELEaaS).
