Taking Care of Our Elders through Augmented Spaces
—As the population ages worldwide, more and more efforts are being made toward providing the best conditions possible for our elders. In these efforts, technology plays a very prominent role. We present our proposal for ambient-assisted living spaces where an underlying sensorial infrastructure, coupled with sentient visors, can aid individuals in many daily tasks that promote a safer and healthier lifestyle. We also discuss some scenarios based on our contributions that serves as a showcase of what can be accomplished. Keywords-ambient assisted living; sentient visors; ubiquitous computing
