Policy-based Home Care Systems

Feng Wang, Arthur I. Karshmer, Jürgen Nehmer, Hartmut Raffler, Gerhard Tröster
We propose applying policy-based management in home care systems to facilitate the delivery and evolution of home care systems, and help the detection and resolution of conflicts in these systems.  ...  It is accepted that home care systems need to be customised and personalised for individual person. They also need to evolve over time. Besides, conflicts may occur between care services.  ...  We propose using policy-based systems to facilitate the delivery and evolution of home care systems.  ...

Towards personalised home care systems

Feng Wang, Kenneth J. Turner
2008 Proceedings of the 1st ACM international conference on PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments - PETRA '08  
In this paper, we present ongoing work on programming home care systems to support personalisation, adaptability over time, and dependability. A policy-based approach is used to build such systems.  ...  We present the technical details of our approach, including a policy language for home care and the corresponding system architecture.  ...  A policy-based home care system captures this by specifying the behaviour of a system through policies (i.e. rules).  ...
