    images[1]The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA), an international not-for-profit industry association dedicated to the advancement of intelligent home and intelligent building technologies, has just announced a liaision agreement with Continua Health Alliance, an international non-profit, open industry alliance of more than 240 leading healthcare and technology organizations dedicated to developing a global ecosystem of personal connected health solutions.

    The liaison agreement will allow both organizations to benefit from CABA’s collaborative research study entitled “Aging in the Connected Home”.  The study will examine and determine potential connected home product, service and business opportunities based on needs and expectations of the senior consumer market to support aging-in-place.

    This announcement should be considered a significant step forward for the proliferation of pervasive computing for seniors. This geek is thinking about prototypes I’ve seen on products that track elderly folks, sense gait, and know if there is a fall or if there is no motion for a long period of time.
