Despite the advancement in electronic industry and the high potential of ambient intelligence applications in the domain of tele-health, the task of engineering such systems is non-trivial and convincing solutions are still missing. The engineering challenges to cope with and the inappropriateness of current engineering methods and research approaches complicate the process of telehealth system development. The purpose of this paper is twofold: (i) to list the current research challenges for tele-health systems from an engineering perspective and (ii) to show how we approach the challenges by means of an assisted living laboratory for engineering and evaluation purposes.
