Abstract

The IoT has an enormous potential to dramatically improve the quality of life and health of elderly population. In this sense, Ambient Intelligent (AmI) environments focused on the domains of Assisted Living (AAL) represent one of the most promising IoT areas to explore and exploit. We present an intelligent AmI open-source system that aims to monitor and control smart homes and residences for elderly people in order to enhance the safety, health and comfort of the elderly people. For achieving an interoperable interface for collecting, storing and retrieving data from very heterogeneous sensors it integrates a Sensor Observation Service of the Open Geospatial Consortium and follows open standards. Our system is validated from a practical perspective as it is implemented in a pilot residence in Spain.
