Core topics of the standardization roadmap
The need for developments in the ambient assisted living (AAL) segment is, on the one hand, due to the demographic development and, on the other, the increasing desire for comfort. To implement assistance systems for everyday use, regulatory principles must be taken into account because they are accompanied by a variety of safety-related and legal requirements. AAL is also characterized by a high level in interdisciplinarity which results in a wide variety of involved partners from sectors like medicine, technology and the economy and also require a wide variety of specifications. The AAL standardization roadmap and its contents help create clarity in the sensitive subject area of technology-supported living, and remedy uncertainty.
