As the European population ages, more support is needed with fewer hands to cater for their needs. There is a huge market potential for Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) solutions, but adoption is limited because they require significant resources for implementation.
To address this, universAAL will produce an open platform that provides a standardized approach making it technically feasible and economically viable to develop AAL solutions.
This project has been partially funded with support from the EC.
The current release of universAAL consists of the following parts: AAL Studio, Runtime Support Platform (RSP), universAAL Control Centre (uCC) and universAAL store (uStore). AAL Studio is an integrated development environment which consists of a set of Eclipse-plugins, RSP supplies the communication infrastructure, uCC provides support in the installation, customization and maintenance of the uAAL services provided by the uStore into the AAL space and uStore brings developers of applications and potential users together.
