Ambient Assisted Living has been widely perceived as a viable solution to mitigate the astronomical increase in the cost of health care. In the context of our Geras Project, we propose a Model-Driven Engineering framework for handling high-level specifications that capture the concerns of elderly people still living at home. These concerns are related to concrete living issues, like being notified of a ringing phone for a deaf people, or receiving adequate assistance after a fall. The framework explicitly models three aspects: agent’s goals, formally capturing users’ concerns; abstract solutions, defining a canvas for answering the goal; and concrete solutions in terms of APIs or various combination of APIs, for their operationalisation. We illustrate the usage of our framework on two simple scenarios.
