PROCEEDING OF THE 12TH CONFERENCE OF FRUCT ASSOCIATION

5-9 November 2012

To assist independent living of senior citizens at their homes, a large variety of systems are used. The most sophisticated solutions are built using ambient technologies. A number of technology platforms are designed to provide ubiquitous services for maintaining a high quality of life while reducing operational expenses. Interoperability between platforms at different levels, including GUIs’ dependences on devices is still a major weakness of many modern solutio ns. In a given work a vision of the Ubiquitous Home Environment is presented with respect to the ICT Home Services delivery. An implementation of a serving engine developed at Oulu University of Applied Sciences – the UbiHomeServer – is described. An abstracted view to its front-end is introduced. Such abstraction may reduce GUIs’ dependences on devices and thus increase an interoperability of a system.

Index Terms: Elderly, Senior Citizen, User Interface, Mobile, Smart Phone, Tablet PC, Touch Screen, Service, Ubiquitous, Home Environment.
