Abstract

Due to current demographic trends and ageing more and more people are living alone and need proper support in their daily activities. We propose a model for smart home environment upon which we base our solution described in this paper. Example solution aims to increase reassurance for people living alone by providing them with the reminding and smart home functionalities encapsulated in terms of OSGi bundles. Medication management and timely notifications combined with lighting and audio system control allow elderly users to individually increase their autonomies while living alone.
