We are building an agent-oriented system to aid elderly people to live longer in their homes, increasing the duration of their independence from round-the-clock care while maintaining important social connectedness and reducing caregiver burden. Independent LifeStyle Assistant (TM) (I.L.S.A.) is a multiagent system that incorporates a unified sensing model, probabilistically derived situation awareness, hierarchical task network response planning, real-time action selection control, complex coordination, and machine learning. This paper describes I.L.S.A's agents and present a scenario of the information flow.
