Ambient Assisted Living environments use different sensors and actuators to enable their endusers to live in their preferred environments. Unlike smart homes, where a target audience is usually a family unit, standard Ambient Assisted Living end users are care receivers and care providers. This article describes an approach based on the fog computing paradigm to detect sleep apnea in an Ambient Assisted Living context unobtrusively. The edge nodes process and detect local activities of daily

This research shows that sensors, which are unobtrusive and do not interfere with users' daily routines, can be successfully used for pattern observation.
