Intelligent environments (“ambient intelligence”) and, in particular, the application field of ambient assisted living are among the new technologies whose development and application potential is to be identified early, and for which innovative solutions are to be proposed for dealing with and avoiding possible risks. This is to happen by means of a technical analysis sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

The aim of the “ITA“ project is to investigate how older, sick, or disabled persons can be supported to lead independent and fulfilled lives as long as possible. The project centers on the application fields of intelligent building, medical and security technology, and mobility, brought together in the concept of ambient assisted living.
