Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is currently one of the important research and development areas, where software engineering aspects play a significant role. The goal of AAL solutions is to apply ambient intelligence technologies to enable people with specific needs to continue to live in their preferred environments. This paper presents an approach and several evaluations for emergency monitoring applications. Experiments in a laboratory setting were performed to evaluate the accuracy of recognizing Activities of Daily Living (ADL). The results show that it is possible to detect ADLs with an accuracy of 92% on average. Hence, we conclude that it is possible to support elderly people in staying longer in their homes by autonomously detecting emergencies on the basis of ADL recognition.
