The DFKI Competence Center Ambient Assisted Living – CCAAL – is a virtual cross-project and cross-department organization within the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence coordinating and conducting research and development in the area of Ambient Assisted Living - AAL.
It joins forces from the departments Cognitive Assistants (COS), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Agents and Simulated Reality (ASR), Institute for Information Systems (IWi), Augmented Vision (AV), Smart Data & Knowledge Services (SDKS), and Robotics Innovation Center (RIC) and thus offers competences in a wide range of areas within AAL. Following a holistic approach to AAL, the driving force for research and development are primarily users of the technology, society and business partners.
The CCAAL's long-term vision is to promote an accessible intelligent environment beyond today's state-of-the-art based on standards-based open architectures and innovative solutions where everyone can live a secure and autonomous life and thus play role in society. It does so by combining competences and cutting-edge results and assets from projects running in the participating research departments.
