This includes reminding and alerting the assisted person(s) and their environment, giving feedback, advice, and impulses for physical, or social activities, among others.

[WZGP04], [DB08], [PVdBW+ 04], and [ESB07]), which are also used in the AAL domain (see [PG07] and [KC06]). The analysis of the scenarios and use cases, however, have yielded requirements and constraints, which have shown that these mainstream technologies are not well-suited for the AAL domain. In this paper we prese...
