Perceptive spaces promoting independent aging

Objective

PERSONA aims at advancing the paradigm of Ambient Intelligence through the harmonisation of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) technologies and concepts for the development of sustainable and affordable solutions for the social inclusion and independent living of Senior Citizen, integrated in a common semantic framework. It will develop a scalable open standard technological platform to build a broad range of AAL Services, to demonstrate and test the concept in real life implementations, assessing their social impact and establishing the initial business strategy for future deployment of the proposed technologies and services.

The main challenges of PERSONA are:
- To find solutions and develop AAL Services for social inclusion, for support in daily life activities, for early risk detection, for personal protection from health and environmental risks, for support in mobility and displacements
- To develop a technological platform that allows the seamless and natural access to those services indicated above,
- To create a psychologically pleasant and easy- to- use integrated solutions
- To demonstrate that the solutions found are affordable and sustainable for all the actors and stakeholders involved: elderly citizens living, welfare systems, service providers in the AAL market.

The PERSONA technical platform will exploit and incorporate a broad range of relevant technologies which are developed and integrated in the project: AAL system reference architecture, micro- and nano-electronics, embedded systems, Human Machine Interfaces , Communication , software, web and network technologies, biosensors, embedded and distributed sensors, energy generation and control technologies, and intelligent software to tools for decision support.

An important measure of success for the project will come from the outcome of the evaluation and validation in extensive test-beds and trials in three sites in Spain, Italy, and Denmark.
