The REMOTE AAL Project: Remote Health and Social Care for Independent Living of Isolated Elderly with Chronic Conditions
REMOTE is an AAL project that aims at advancing the state-of-the-art in fields of tele-healthcare and ambient intelligence by enhancing the elderly’s home with audio-visual, sensor, motoric monitoring and automation abilities to trace vital signs, activity, behaviour and health condition, and detect risks and critical situations, as well as provide, proactively and reactively, effective and efficient support at home. This paper presents the project objectives, the approach and principles endorsed, and the expected results. Overall, REMOTE is characterised by: a user-centered philosophy and consistent involvement of users; processes for reaching consensus among all stakeholders; strong commitment to ethical and legal issues; sound scientific and evidence-based methods (incl. real context pilots in 6 countries) to measure usability, impact and acceptance of the developments by elderly populations.
