Gerhard Tröster. Sensors for AAL – what is actually missing?. In Assisted Living Systems - Models, Architectures and Engineering Approaches. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 7462, pp. 1-4, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2008)


Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) relies on continuously monitored and reliable data describing the vital status, the situation and the behavior of the elderly. Wearable, on-body sensing, computing and communication systems will outperform the "ambient intelligence" approach, at least in the near future. Future wearable systems consist of a "Smart Phone" as the personal computing and communication hub, and on-body sensors, mainly integrated in the clothes.
