Use cases related to ambient assisted living (AAL) in the field of audio, video and multimedia systems and equipment
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|

This Technical Report comprises seventeen use cases for Ambient Assisted Living submitted to IEC between June 2012 and September 2013.
The initial objective of this Technical Report is the identification of AAL scenarios and use cases based on real-world applications and requirements. Use cases are a well-known tool for expressing requirements at a high level with real-life relevance. The use cases provide a practical context for considerations on interoperability and standards based on user experience. They make it clear where existing standards can be further used and highlight where standardisation work is needed. The use cases are based on the identified requirements of elderly people and people with disabilities.
The use case scenarios demonstrate both the usability barriers and functional requirements. In addition, the accessibility principles developed in ISO/IEC Guide 71 were applied.
A further objective of this report is to highlight potential areas for standardisation in the AAL environment to ensure ease of operation and interoperability with a focus on specific aspects relating to audio, video and multimedia equipment.
