Executive Summary

Ambient Intelligence has acquired great importance in recent years and requires the development of new innovative solutions. This paper presents a distributed telemonitoring system aimed at improving healthcare and assistance to dependent people at their homes. The system implements a SOA-based platform which allows heterogeneous Wireless Sensor Networks to communicate in a distributed way independently of time and location restrictions. This approach provides the system with a higher ability to recover from errors and a better flexibility to change their behavior at execution time. Preliminary results are presented in this paper.
