Enhanced Living Environments (ELE) encompass all Information and Communications Technologies' (ICT) achievements supporting true Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) environments. It is an umbrella for the infrastructures and services needed to sustain independent and more autonomous living, via seamless integration of ICT within homes and residences. For this, ELE encompasses the latest developments associated with the Internet of Things, towards designing services designed to better help and support people, or as a general term, to better live their life and interact with their environment. This chapter makes an introduction into the technologies, technique and mechanisms, and algorithms, in other words the systems support for Ambient Assisted Living and Enhanced Living Environments.
