Abstract

Although the development of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) technologies is being financed to support older people, there are not many systems on the market to date. Other studies have tried to understand this by looking at user acceptance issues. However, by looking only at the user acceptance, we may miss important aspects to explain why systems went wrong in the first place. To understand this, we consulted with people directly involved in the development of AAL. In this study, input was gained from experts through workshops and an interactive poster. We present the common issues reported across various AAL development projects that experts thought were most important to success or failure of projects. We also describe some ideas from people with experience in AAL for solving some of these problems.
