Due to the aging of the population western world need technological solutions to improve the quality of life of the elderly/disabled people, helping them to stay independent and autonomous at home. Technologies for e-health need to be tested on real before going to the market. Unfortunately, testing solutions for “Active Assisted Living” in a domotic house requires an enormous effort in terms of work, time and money, especially because we’d need to test them with real inhabitants. Therefore we developed a 3D simulator for AAL, with the goal to model different virtual scenarios, controlled in an autonomous way by a virtual caregiver able to take decisions from information received from the sensors/inhabitants, and able to return an output in the form of services. The interface with the simulator is provided by a mobile application, while the built-in sensors of the smartphone make it an element that integrates the simulated environment.
