Online Repository of Standards for AAL Updated

Standardisation and interoperability are key market factors for the success of AAL solutions. Many AAL systems combine components from different domains like networks, telecommunication, home automation, medical technology and consumer electronics. These domains have specific standards that in some cases need to be adapted for AAL. Furthermore, there are standards on ergonomics, accessibility and usability that are helpful in designing systems that can be used by all people. This results in a vast and overwhelming number of standards that are applicable to the AAL sector.

The AALIANCE2 Repository of Standards, which is a reference database of all standards and publicly available specifications that are of relevance for the AAL sector, is available online at http://nero.offis.de/projects/aaliance2/start. Access to the repository content requires a free registration by e-mail to <aaliance2@offis.de>.

Since the world of standards is changing and evolving continuously, the Repository of Standards needs to follow these changes. The AALIANCE2 team is happy to announce that the repository has been updated and revised in the last few months to reflect new standards, new editions of existing standards, and to close gaps in the repository. Have a look!
