Abstract

Information and Communication Technologies are more and more present in the modern society. The penetration of personal devices in worldwide citizens is daily increasing. In addition, the accessibility of those devices is being more and more improved in order to profit the technology advances to help people with disabilities in daily life. Nevertheless, the processing capabilities of those personal devices are not enough to cover the need of intelligence for holistic assistive technologies. This addressesinnovative approaches in which remote resources can be remotely accessed and consumed by mobile devices . In this paper, a cloud-based architecture is presented. The CORE infrastructure provides an intelligent and pervasive environment composed of remote services to assistive applications.
