This booklet offers the refereed lawsuits of the Fourth Italian discussion board on Ambient Assisted residing (AAL), held in Ancona, Italy, in October 2013. a variety of concerns are coated and new technological advancements are defined so as to aid the autonomy and independence of people with detailed wishes via an cutting edge and built-in procedure, designed to answer the socio-economic demanding situations of an getting older inhabitants. subject matters addressed comprise: healthiness and healthiness, prevention and rehabilitation and help for care services; energetic getting older and its social implications; providers for the frail aged with illnesses and their households; foodstuff; ICT platforms/technologies for the good thing about the aged; domestic automation and regulate applied sciences (autonomy, protection and effort saving); clever towns and shrewdpermanent groups; telemedicine, telerehabilitation, and telecare; mobility, participation and social inclusion; video games and enjoyable for the aged; construction layout; social housing; interface layout and interplay (accessibility, acceptance); social rules to inspire and aid lively getting older; enterprise types, industry research and improvement of sustainable financing and company and ethics, privateness and information safeguard. Many experimental validations in keeping with consumer trials and usefulness checking out are offered and mentioned. the data and insights supplied during this e-book might help researchers and others keen on AAL to appreciate proper societal developments, novel technological advancements and urgent challenges.

Example text

Although the quality of the signal can be reduced in some conditions (longer distances), the SNR is still sufficiently high (>8 dB) to provide reliable data [6, 9]. Finally, it can also be observed that the mean respiration rate can also be easily measured as the peak of the power spectrum density (PSD) of the time signals (Fig. 4). The measurement system proposed presents also low sensitivity to the subject postures. 97) with LDVi are also reported for the measured mean respiration frequencies [6].

They are promising, but more suited to the use in specialized, clinical environments instead of use in domotic area. In fact the acceptability of video system in domestic environments is very low for privacy reasons. In this paper, the authors propose a novel approach based on the use of electromagnetic sensing of the respiration activity of a subject. In adjunction to its non contact nature, the use of electromagnetic waves present the advantage respect to the image-based methods to be easily installable at home without the need to have in direct view with the target (some materials are transparent to the electromagnetic waves) and therefore they result to be particularly suited for use in AAL.

Passive mode: in this mode, the reader generates an electromagnetic field and the passive tag responds by modulating the antenna load for data transmission. In addition, NFC technology allows a smart phone to emulate a passive tag, or it can act as a reader of tags. • Active mode: both devices generate a magnetic field and modulate the opposite magnetic field. A communication between a reader and a smartphone, or between two smartphones can be established. 36 V. di Credico et al. The NFC protocol and message formats are based on standards that are already in use for RFId to maintain compatibility with them (allowing applications such as reading information from food labels), but they seek to extend the operational capabilities thanks to peer-to-peer among “intelligent” devices, for example two smartphones.
