Issues in the Development of AAL Systems: What Experts Think
J. D. Hallewell Haslwanter, G. Fitzpatrick - Issues in the Development of AAL Systems: What Experts Think - Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments, Rhodes, Greece, 2017, pp. 201-208
Although the development of Ambient Assisted Living technologies is being financed to support older people, there are not many systems on the market to date. Other studies have tried to understand this by looking at user acceptance. However, by looking only at the user acceptance, we may miss important aspects to explain why systems went wrong in the first place. To understand this, we need to consult people involved in the development. In this study, input was gained directly from experts through workshops and an interactive poster. We present the common issues reported across various AAL development projects that experts thought were most important to success or failure of projects. We also describe some ideas from experts for solving some of these problems.
