Abstract

The elderly suffer from discomfort in social life owing to the decline of their physical, psychological, and social functions. The elderly who spend a lot of time indoors require an intelligent system to extend their time to live independently in a residential environment. Recently, the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) concept was introduced to commercialize various technologies and apply them to urban and architectural environments. However, AAL’s connection to architectural elements is insufficient. This study intends to build a residential environment platform that integrates Internet of Things (IoT) technology and architectural elements to support the independence of the elderly based on the AAL concept. The proposed platform is designed to be applied to various scenarios and services. A responsive façade system was designed to verify the platform, and the usefulness of the system was evaluated through the interaction of the designed façade and an acting manager.
