Abstract:
The lack of social integration of elderly people, especially with impairments like restricted mobility, is a huge problem. Often, these people become isolated and social contacts become impoverished. Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) IT systems should support elderly people to stay in contact with their social environment and should be adaptable exactly to their personal needs. In this paper, we present a platform offering assistance in communication, information acquisition and learning for elderly people to allow them to stay longer at their own familiar homes. The services of this platform are context aware and personalizable. Many AAL systems are context aware, but often focus on the environmental context and not on the users themselves and their personal characteristics, like health condition, interests, needs, etc. In this work, the context is modelled as an ontology, where the user is the central concept of the platform, in order to realize personalization of services and a better assistance by the system. The ontology developed by the project Person Centered Environment for Information, Communication and Learning (PCEICL) offers a historical view of the user’s changing characteristics and environment, is simply expandable and is used within the platform by software agents to communicate between single services to adapt to the users needs.
