Title: Supporting the design of an ambient assisted living system using virtual reality prototypes
Authors: José Creissac Campos

Issue Date: 2015
Abstract: APEX, a framework for prototyping ubiquitous environments, is used to design an Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) system to enhance a care home for older people. The environment a llows participants in the design process to experience the proposed design and enables developers to explore the design by rapidly developing alternatives. APEX provided the means to explore alternative designs through a virtual environment. It provides a mediating representation (a boundary object) allowing users to be involved in the design process. A group of residents in a city-based care home were involved in the design. The paper describes the design process and lessons learnt for the design of AAL systems. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
