Abstract: The research area of ambient assisted living is concerned with providing required assistance to elderly and/or disabled people in order for them to get through their everyday tasks and chores in an easy and safe manner. This usually makes use of hardware and/or software solutions in relation to the virtual / senior companion field of study. Additionally, ambient assisted living exerts a number of tools and resources specifically developed as technological aids for an ageing population. This project looks at the possibility of improving someone’s quality of life through the use of an ambient assisted living prototype solution. By combining vital research aspects from the fields of: ambient assisted living, technological aids for the aging population, and senior / virtual companions, this project explore the development and evaluation of such a software solution, the Ambient Assisted Living Buddy (AALB). This implies that the AALB manages to work correctly as a concept to ambient assisted living. Furthermore, this project proved that the possibility of improving someone’s quality of life through an ambient assisted living solution can be effective and has a high potential.
