EvAAL Competition on Indoor Localization and Tracking

universaal project

Today was the last day of the EvAAL Competition on Indoor Localization and Tracking at the CIAMI Living Lab in Valencia, Spain. This competition is part of the European project UniversAAL (UNIVERsal open platform and reference Specification for Ambient Assisted Living) in which the Life Supporting Technologies is involved. The aim of the porject accoording to its website is:

universAAL will produce an open platform that provides a standardized approach making it technically feasible and economically viable to develop AAL solutions. The platform will be produced by a mixture of new development and consolidation of state-of-the-art results from existing initiatives. We recognize that this not only poses technical challenges but also raises issues of adoption and uptake. So work on establishing and running a sustainable community will achieve attention right from the start, with promotion of existing results gradually evolving into promotion of the universAAL platform, as it develops into one consolidated, validated and standardized European open AAL platform.
