This paper reports on the research and data/infrastructure challenges faced in moving pervasive computing technology to large numbers of home deployments from both a controlled clinical and laboratory setting. The purpose of these home deployments is twofold; to provide a number of services to a cohort of elders and to collect a rich array of physiological, environmental and computational context data for clinical study. By adopting a scenario based design framework we can incorporate the results from ethnographic study, ongoing application development to help realise a suite of hardware, software, services and sensors from our technology platform suitable for in-situ study.
