Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) pursues the issues of how information and communication technology (ICT) is used to support the quality of life of the elderly and disabled people in smart home environment. Among the many AAL solutions, universAAL is one of the most open platforms that provides a holistic and standardized approach for an easy and economic development of AAL services. However, the compatibility with smart home networking systems that are based on ECHONET standard is not supported. Thus, this paper elucidates the bridging in between the universAAL and the ECHONET standard and thereby enable the attainment of novel AAL applications and services for ECHONET-based smart home automation systems.
