2011 Conceptual Papers A total of 42 articles were classified as conceptual papers defining innovative concepts on the following areas: sensor networks (n = 2), user interaction (n = 6), technology development (n = 6), context awareness (n = 2), living lab (n = 5), and future challenges for the AAL systems (n = 21). The following topics present some examples illustrating this classification. Sensor Networks Bouet and Pujolle (2010) present the potential and challenges on the use of RFID in health care.

Through analogy with person-to-person communication, person-to-machine interaction modalities can be defined according to their relation with our five senses or their equivalent in existing technologies. Some senses are poorly exploited by existing technologies, for example taste and smell, whereas other senses are very rich, like sight and touch. Some concrete examples for every possible sense and associated modality (IST Amigo Project 2005a) are as follows: (1) sound—any type of audible sound may be used for direct or implicit interactions; (2) sight—vision offers the widest range of possibilities concerning user interactions; (3) touch—the tactile sense can make information such as pressure level, temperature level, and recognition of surface textures available; and (4) combining modalities.
