An assistive living system that gives our elderly population the comfort and confidence necessary to remain independently in their own homes is essential for enhanced longevity. Ambient Assistive Living technology that provides intuitive and context-sensitive support presents researchers with additional challenges. This paper details the creation and development of an “Ambient Assistant” application augmenting and extending the open source framework OpenAAL with enhanced reasoning, intelligent monitoring of the person and decision-making capabilities. The aim is a complete framework with fully interoperable components such as multi-parameter sensors.
