By Ger van Den Broek, Filippo Cavallo, Christian Wehrmann

During this e-book a roadmap on Ambient Assisted residing (AAL) is gifted. it truly is produced by means of the eu Ambient Assisted dwelling Innovation Alliance, or AALIANCE venture, funded lower than the seventh ecu Framework Programme. within the first bankruptcy new constructing tendencies in AAL are checked out from diverse views and obstacles to their implementation are mentioned. this is often through a close dialogue of the applying domain names; AAL4persons (chapter 2), AAL@community (chapter 3), AAL@work (chapter four) and an in depth presentation of the allowing applied sciences - sensing, reasoning, performing, interplay and verbal exchange - (chapter 5). the ultimate bankruptcy offers how to arrange an AAL process (chapter 6). This led to a record that may be regarded as the know-how roadmap for AAL. IOS Press is a global technology, technical and scientific writer of fine quality books for lecturers, scientists, and execs in all fields. many of the parts we put up in: -Biomedicine -Oncology -Artificial intelligence -Databases and knowledge structures -Maritime engineering -Nanotechnology -Geoengineering -All features of physics -E-governance -E-commerce -The wisdom financial system -Urban experiences -Arms regulate -Understanding and responding to terrorism -Medical informatics -Computer Sciences

Example text

The MATS robot was developed as a 5-DOF robotic arm, equipped at its extremities with a conical connector that could also serve as a gripper, allowing total symmetry in the use of the robot extremities as a docking device, or as an end-effector for manipulation. The climbing process was performed by letting the robot to move between very simple docking stations (DSs) placed in the environment. Experimental tests were performed with users, related to tasks like eating (the MATS robot, attached to a Docking Station, could take food from a special plate and bring it to the user’s mouth and shaving/making up) (Balaguer, 2005).

Because the system knows the map of the shop and its location in the environment, it is able to plan its way to reach the desired point and move autonomously to it, avoiding obstacles, because of its in-built sensors. Robotic support to in-home mobility has the following challenges: • • • • reliable map-based navigation with obstacle-avoidance capability; intention-estimation based selection of destinations; features of sitting mobility (wheelchair), support to postural transitions and walking (combined lifter/walker); modularity: moving user to places and objects to user with one mobile base.

Triaxial accelerometers can be used to measure daily activities, such as standing, walking, ascending and descending stairs and cycling. Using the collected information in combination with monitored vital signs (weight, blood pressure, heart rate, SpO2), health care applications (physiotherapists, dieticians) for instance persons with overweight, cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes or COPD. With specific sensors on limbs and torso and proper feedback it can even be used to monitor rehabilitation exercises.
