Abstract: Smart environments are, since twenty years, an important topic of research in computer science. The major reason is that smart environments offer solutions to several problems that our society face. For instance, with the rising proportion of the elder’s population in most of the Occidental and Asian countries and the scarcity of caregiving resources compel for a new vision of caregiving. Ubiquitous technologies, such as smart homes, give the technological support to ensure personal cares at home (Rialle et al., 2008). On the other hand, the smart cities initiative corresponds to the approach, where the urban spaces are instrumentalized with sensors, citizen are providing data through crowdsensing and data collected are analyzed to increase the effectiveness of the management and to propose enhanced services to the citizen (Ratti and Townsend, 2011). Both kinds of smart environments have their own requirements and purpose; however it is essential to support users across these environments, notably for people with special needs.
