Abstract

This Special Thematic Session (STS) was intended to provide a forum to discuss some major issues related to Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) services and technologies to support aging in place. The papers in the session are introduced here. These cover a broad range of topics including the development of new solutions, existing solutions and their evaluation and also issues and preferences related to specific systems. The technologies described are very diverse and include communication systems, entertainment platforms, telecare systems, wearable technologies and assistive robots. Together these contributions can support others developing these types of systems in the future. In the end, we hope this can benefit the growing number of older people by supporting safety and independence, and thus help people to age with more dignity and enjoyment.
