The two Austrian AAL pilot regions, RegionAAL in Styria and Smart VitAALity in Carinthia, developed and evaluated technology to empower older adults in their daily living routines. Different aspects like health, information and communication were considered and developed tools like fall detection as well as emergency call functions were designed to enable seniors to live a longer independent life at home. This paper displays first evaluation results of both pilots based on the usage of the user-interaction devices: tablet and smartwatch.
