Intelligent systems and communication technologies have experienced huge advances in the last few years. AAL can benefit from mixing both research fields. This article presents an intelligent communication architecture for AAL. It uses artificial intelligence to process the information gathered from several types of communication (e.g., wireless sensor networks, wireless ad hoc networks, wireless mesh networks) over any type of communication technologies (e.g., deviceto- device, machine-to-machine, sensor-actuator), know what is happening in the network, and detect if elderly people need assistance. The article shows the main intelligent algorithms included in the AAL system and the developed software application. Several real measurements validate the operation of our proposal.
