Action execution flows top-down. The action is transmitted by the communication network to the physical actuators. These change the state of the surrounding environment. Therefore, sensing, communicating, and acting are crucial issues within the AAL paradigm (Camarinha-Matos and Vieira 1999; Costa et al. 1). The sensing, communicating, and acting functions require a broad range of physical devices. Moreover, the technological structure of the AAL environment should have additional components (Camarinha-Matos and Vieira 1999; Costa et al.
