The main outcome of the European project with the same name—eWALL (http://ewallproject.eu)—is a solution designed specifically for people with chronic diseases or frailty that brings back a normal and safe life at home. “It is simple to use and very effective,” according to scientific coordinator Sofoklis Kyriazakos of Aalborg University. Based on an integrated sensing infrastructure, eWALL connects houses into its cloud platform and transforms them into so-called home caring environments. Kyriazakos states, “Users can enjoy an increased quality of life, without the feeling of being monitored or controlled, by using a variety of intelligent apps available through the eWALL cloud. At the same time, physicians, caregivers, and relatives can be in contact with their people and contribute to their life comfort.” eWALL is leveraging future Internet technologies (cloud, IoT, big data) to meet demanding user needs, among them to be easy, unobtrusive, and of course effective. Based on an integrated sensing infrastructure, eWALL connects houses into its cloud platform and transforms them into home caring environments.
