The general objective of the AmIVITAL project is the development of a new generation of ICT technologies and tools for the modelling, design, operation and implementation of Ambient Intelligence (AmI) devices and systems to be used for providing services and personal support for independent living, wellbeing and health.

This involves the construction of a technological space to facilitate the development of the European concept of AAL (Ambient Assisted Living) through the design and application of business models for an emerging sector with good future prospects aimed at covering primary social necessities. The intention is to implement a series of systems which will be used to develop applications to support independent living and mobility in the elderly; monitoring and control of those with chronic illnesses; providing social and work integration services by accessible means; assistance to relations and informal support for independent living; provision of services to encourage healthy lifestyles – including those that facilitate the practice of sports; management tools for this whole range of services for professionals; and the integration of independent service providers.

In accordance with CENIT objectives, the AmIVITAL project aims to develop technologically advanced R&D&i capacities at the highest international level for the development of an industrial textile to be used in social AmI applications. This is in answer to a growing social demand and is expected to contribute to the economic objectives of promoting industrial competitiveness, jobs and general economic welfare.

The AMIVITAL project consortium is composed of four large enterprises based in Spain: SIEMENS S.A., Telefónica R&D, Telvent and Ericsson España, with the assistance of smaller business groups such as: Elasa and Airzone. Research groups associated with these firms include: Instituto ITACA of Valencia, CARDIF, The Polytechnic University of Madrid, University of Zaragoza, University of Granada, and the Instituto de Salud Carlos III of Madrid.
