Abstract

Smart Homes provide an infrastructure for implementing the 'ageing in place' paradigm. Assisted living services are essential features within a smart home. This paper presents the details of preliminary work in the development of a context-aware assistance system that can be used pervasively within smart homes. We have investigated the issues surrounding the provision of assistance in undertaking activities of daily living within a smart home and have subsequently outlined a framework to address the identified challenges. The work is currently under development and plans have been made for evaluation within a simulated living environment.
