The Ambient Intelligence (AmI) area is currently very prolific, as it is the object of various developments and novel projects. The AmI domain is very complex and presents an important social strand that affects numerous people; thus, it is very relevant. AmI proposes systems and platforms that use technological helpers to perform daily tasks on a home environment.
Over the last few years, AmI has been prolific in providing solutions to assist the user. However, its personalization has not been widely addressed, and it is necessary to have customized systems to properly respond to users' expectations. Thus, the unification of human–computer interactions is essential to offer a more natural way of engaging with its users and translate desires into actions.
New developments like the IOT (Internet of Things) and the increasing amount of computing power of handheld and, recently, wearable devices have allowed the development of environments that were, until recently, unavailable through embedded systems. Therefore, there are a lot of implementation options open for development in this area.
With this Sensors Special Issue on “Ambient Intelligent Systems using Wearable Sensors”, we intend to provide an overview of the research being carried out in this interdisciplinary area in which the use of wearable devices facilitates interactions with users. To this end, we invite novel, high-quality contributions that demonstrate a user-centered focus and preferably (but not necessarily) come from an an engineering perspective.
