UniversAAL Training Course
Title: Developing AAL applications using universAAL platform
Instructor: Andrej Grguric, M.Eng. (Ericsson Nikola Tesla, Croatia)

Abstract: The AAL (Ambient Assisted Living) could be perceived as one of the most promising areas of AmI. The objective of AAL is to facilitate the goal of "ageing well at home" through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Main problems that the AAL field currently encounters are lack of standards and standard solutions for AAL in terms of different and often proprietary protocols, data formats and APIs. The idea of universAAL FP7 project is to create an open platform for provision of AAL services that will solve the problems mentioned above and will facilitate creation of a thriving market for AAL services. The project aims to make it technically feasible and economically viable to develop AAL services and to consolidate all the previous experience of creating AAL platforms to create a reference specification and standards for AAL platforms. This free training workshop in line with the conference aims to introduce universAAL platform to developers and show them how to start with basic development in AAL environment. First part would include theoretical introduction to the proposed AAL platform and used technology, and second part guided tutorial about developing simple AAL application following with hands-on exercises.

This event is free and only available for attendees of AmI’13.

It is important that you indicate your interest in the event before mid-November.
