Abstract

Ubiquitous computing defines a set of technologies to make computing omnipresent in real life environments. In the area of ambient assisted living, ubiquitous technologies have been used to improve the life quality and expectancy for elderly people. Recently, researches have shown that the use of context-awareness combined with proactive actions can cause systems to act more appropriately in assistance to the user. In this paper, we present a new persistent and proactive data retrieval model for ambient assisted living systems. This model provides an architecture that is able to integrate information that is gathered from the user environment and considers the current user context to act in a proactive manner. The model was implemented on a service inte-grated in a Situation as a Service middleware and it was applied in a case study for evaluation and validation.
