The JADE project aims at constructing and developing a research agenda and the associated action plan in emerging domains such as healthy aging, independent living and remote care. These domains are considered as very fertile ground to advance for ambient intelligence technologies. Specific applications in the yet conceptual areas are remote consultation, record transfer, remote monitoring and care of the elderly, and monitoring of the daily living parameters. The JADE project focuses on promoting the concept of healthy and independent aging within these applications contexts. VisioThink adds a novel dimension to this project thanks to its key expertise in geographical information technologies. Funded by EU 7th Framework Programme, the JADE project brings together key academic, industrial, and governmental units around the emerging concepts of healthy and independent living.
