As a result of the continuous increase of ageing population, a growing number of frail and impaired people (both in physical and cognitive functions) need assistance and pose dramatic challenges for the health and welfare systems. The projects in the Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) field aim at developing intelligent systems able to provide personal assistance to elder and impaired people, allowing them to continue living in their familiar environment and preserving as much as possible their independence. AALIANCE is one European FP-7 project developed in the AAL context established for creating a common vision of AAL and developing a roadmap of future steps and projects on the way to AAL systems. In this paper the AALIANCE roadmap document is presented and the main trends towards AAL are addressed, both from technological and human-centered (psychological, cognitive) points of view.
