This aim will be reached by long-term monitoring and analysis of the patient's vital parameters using modern technologies, developed and integrated during the project's lifetime. An integrated service platform will collect data from a variety of biosensors. New biosensors based on nanotechnology will be developed and existing ones reused like blood glucose meters. This data is automatically collected by the Plug&Care Connector, an application running on the patient's mobile device, and transferred to the telemedicine service center. Nurses will interpret the data and provide feedback to the patient.
The project name EmotionAAL stands for:
DLR Simulation and Software Technology Tasks
DLR Simulation and Software Technology develops the Plug & Care Connector, which provides a middleware for mobile devices and supports the monitoring process. It is developed in a platform independent manner, running on a variety of mobile operating systems, e.g. Windows Mobile, Symbian OS (Nokia) and Android. Moreover desktop systems like Windows and Linux will be supported. The aim of this development is to provide standardized interfaces for both, hardware devices collecting data and software applications needing access to the collected data. Those interfaces will abstract from the underlying operating systems, communication technologies used between device and mobile phone (Buetooth, WLAN, USB) and provide an uniform user interfaces. Therefore vendors only need to implement their device driver or application once; it will run on all supported platforms. This is not yet possible with today's variety of mobile operating systems.
