Abstract

To face the problems of elderly and disabled people in a rural environment, the district of Guéret (department of Creuse, France) has set up the “Home automation and Health Pole”. In association with the University of Limoges, this structure is based on the use of e-technologies together with home automation techniques. In this frame, many international collaborations attempts have started through a BSc diploma. This paper sums up these different collaborations and directions.
