Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) is the concept that groups the set of technological solutions, named AAL Services, targeting the extension of the time that elderly and disabled people live independently in their preferred environment, i.e. their own four walls, neighborhood and town where they are used to live [1]. AAL Services provide personalized continuity of care and assistance, dynamically adapted to the individual needs and circumstances of the users throughout their lives.
The main objective of PERSONA is the development of a scalable open standard technological platform to build a broad range of AAL Services. A number of AAL Services are being implemented over such a platform in order to demonstrate, test and evaluate their social impact and potential exploitation scenarios. AAL Services under development are divided into four different categories according to an analysis of elderly needs in regard to a life with the highest level of independence.
