Evaluation of ambient assisted living (AAL) systems is particularly challenging due to the complexity of such systems and the variety of solutions adopted and services offered. Yet analyzing and comparing AAL solutions is paramount for assessing research results in this area. Evaluating AAL Systems through Competitive Benchmarking (EvAAL) is a recently established international competition that aims to address this problem, letting benchmarking and comparison methodologies of AAL systems emerge from experience. Here, the authors describes the first EvAAL competition, which was devoted to localization and tracking. They also review the proposed evaluation criteria, benchmarks, and results. All evaluation data is freely available from the EvAAL website.
