First Prototype of Sensors, Giraff Platform and Network System

This document reports on the first prototype of the system deployed and installed at month 12 in the pilot apartment Ängen in Örebro. It is an integration of the information already reported in the Deliverable 5.1 which describes the preliminary technological integration achieved at month 9.
In addition to that deliverable this document provides a refinement of the initial system architecture according the feedback obtained during the implementation phase, and updates the status of development of the WP2. An analysis of security and privacy requirements regarding collecting, processing and transferring of personal information is also presented.

Currently the prototype includes the Giraff robot, the Look4Myhealth kit, the monitoring sensors from Tunstall, additional environmental sensors, a physiological sensor for pulse oximetry measurements based on Android, the context recognition and configuration planning modules, and the remote storage and repository to collect user data. An initial version of the middleware is also present. The final version of the middleware will be available at month 18 (Deliverable D2.2) when the development of the several modules composing the system is more mature and all the technical requirements completed.
