System Integration | universAAL | ECHONET | Smart Homes
With the advent of information and communication technology, many Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions are being proposed to increase the quality of life of elderly people and reduce health and social care costs. Among these AAL solutions, universAAL seems to be the most promising platform for easy and economical development of AAL services. However, in its current state, the platform is incompatible with smart home systems which are based on the ECHONET standard. This paper presents the bridging between the universAAL and ECHONET standards through a technical point of view and thereby enables AAL services for ECHONET-based smart home environments.
