Title & Task

WG 2

Architecture and Interoperability


Missing interoperability is known as one of the obstacles hindering the market entrance of AAL. But what level of interoperability is needed? The objective of this Technical Working Group is to come up with a definition for an AAL reference architecture based on the user needs, which allows interoperability at different levels by taking into account security and privacy issues.
The WG will focus on the following tasks:
- Define reference terminology and harmonization it with other IEC TCs and SDOs
- Interoperability between domains domains that impact AAL functionality: home networking systems (one domain) and systems used at nursing homes or telehealthy service providers (second domain)
- Definition of systems and their topology based on the AAL use cases and stakeholders
- Define interoperability framework for systems, services, devices and components of AAL system using existing standards.
- Study feasibility of existing AAL reference architectures
- Describe different architectural layers and how they interact with each other.
- Describe general requirements for AAL
- Describe interaction of all devices and systems with AAL services in the "cloud".
- Address security and privacy issues for AAL devices and services in the to be defined architecture
- Liaise with open platform providers and enable interoperability in the AAL environment
