Abstract
In the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) domain, specific systems have been developed and applied to enable people with specific needs, such as elderly or disabled people, to live longer independently in their familiar residential environments. In order to support the development of such systems, a range of AAL platforms have been developed in recent years. However, there are considerable differences among these AAL platforms, particularly with respect to the treatment of important non-functional properties. This makes the selection of a suitable platform for a given AAL project very difficult. In order to support developers in this difficult task, we present an evaluation of relevant AAL platforms based on a selection of quality attributes that are important for AAL systems.
