The population of elderly people keeps increasing rapidly. It is becoming a predominant aspect of our societies. It is therefore necessary to find ways to ensure the care of the needs of older people. We propose the project AngelHome, an innovative home automation system for Ambient Assisted Living that aims to improve the lives of people in their homes. In this way they can live independently and safely within their home without changing their habits. Angel Home offers an integrated and cooperative system with sensors and SOs to enhance the comfort inside the home. It also allows to ensure the safety people through the use of systems able to detect emergency situations. Another objective of this project is the identification and classification of rare events, through machine learning approach, based on data coming from different embedded systems and from the information system. This amount of information (located in a cloud system) also enhances the intelligence of the house, which will learn from what happened in the past.
