The interface to the user is a key factor for the success of AAL solutions. The user interfaces developed at AIT can be operated intuitively, thus facilitating interaction with assistance systems and increasing their usability and acceptance. The designated device can be a computer or a television, a mobile phone or a multitouch table with integrated screen. In its efforts to help older people overcome their reluctance to use new technologies, AIT is piloting innovative communication channels.
