Ambient Living with Embedded Networks, the combination of Body sensors, Ambient sensors Wireless Networks and Telemedicine, implements a novel approach to zeroth, first and second line care, and addresses the widely recognised fact that care must be organized differently in the future.
The ALWEN consortium which is coordinated by Devlab, has set the concrete goal of lifting the engineering science for such systems to the level of commercial product viability within the period of three years. The developed concepts and methods will be implanted in a new generation low-cost integrated circuit with embedded computations and wireless communication.
The economic goal of the current project is to enable industrial partners in three years time to deploy applications based on the developed systems concepts. Applications, running on wireless sensor nodes built around the integrated circuit will have the necessary embedded intelligence to instruments and elderly home. The key differentiator of the ALWEN project is that it aims to cover all aspects from the network and applications right down to the low-cost node, deploy, and test the researched subjects together with a consortium of SME companies for the exploitation.
