ambient assisted living (AAL); personalization; interactive configuration; elderly user

Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) comprises methods, systems, and services applied to improve the quality of daily life for humans, especially elderly people. Recent research emphasizes the implementation of comprehensive AAL platforms which control all technological components included in the entire environment such as one's apartment. The behavior of the system is often determined by a specific set of rules. Thus, personalization according to the person's needs and preferences includes a configuration of the given rule system. Assuming that configuration is not only conducted by technical staff but also by the person him or herself, this process can be regarded as complex, requiring technical knowledge. In this work, we present an interactive and architectural approach to support at the personalization of an AAL system by different types of users.
