Applied technologies and Smart Home applications in the health sector
Abstract: 
Smart homes are no longer design concepts of the future. They are being built now, and they are having a direct impact on the lifestyles of people living in them. The aim of smart home systems is to create an environment that is aware of the activities taking place within it. Beside the healthy people, disabled people also need such systems to make their life easier, because they encounter with a lot of difficulties in their everyday life especially when they are at home.

A Fall Prevention System for the Elderly: Preliminary Results
Abstract: 
The fall prevention in the elderly population is a field of growing interest. This paper presents the preliminary results of a fall prevention system based on a customized exergame program. Results show that the participants involved in the experiments evaluate positively the system usability. Moreover, in order to evaluate the efficiency of the system, a global improvement of around 8.8% has been observed in the postural response after just two sessions with the system.

Indoor Localization: A Cost-Effectiveness vs. Accuracy Study
Abstract: 
"Recognizing the occupants’ movement and locations within a home is a basic functionality, underlying a variety of smart-home services, including energy management, ambient environment control, and assistive-living services for seniors and people with disabilities. The outdoor-localization variant of the problem is effectively addressed with the use of GPS; however, GPS does not work well inside buildings, which makes the indoor positioning problem a very active research topic.

Quality of Context Evaluating Approach in AAL Environment using IoT Technology
Abstract: 
This paper presents an approach to the evaluation of Quality of Context (QoC) parameters in a ubiquitous Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) e-Health platform, supporting the care of people with special needs (elderly or with health problems) thus improving their quality of life. The proposal is initially verified with the Siafu simulator in an AAL scenario where the user’s health is monitored with information about blood pressure and body temperature. The research proceeded with the use of IoT technology, the e-Health Sensor Platform, a differentiated real environment.

Robotic applications towards an interactive alerting system for medical purposes
Abstract: 
"Social consumer robots are slowly but strongly invading our everyday lives as their prices are becoming lower and lower, constituting them affordable for a wide range of civilians. There has been a lot of research concerning the potential applications of social robots, some of which may implement companionship or proxying technology-related tasks and assisting in everyday household endeavors, among others.

HEAR?INFO: A Modern Mobile-Web Platform Addressed to Hard-of-Hearing Elderly Individuals
Abstract: 
In the concept of the hearing loss awareness, a modern mobile-web platform is hereby presented, aiming to offer constant online access to individuals who are hard of hearing, while presenting them regularly updated information concerning their condition. This information is presented via a specific modified interface, taking into account the special needs of the specific community. After a thorough research in GUI, the software requirements substitute or supplement the lack of integrated sound systems, with visual modifications, caption text and even specially chosen colours.
