Ageing is a global phenomenon which is pushing the scientific community forward the development of innovative solutions in the context of Active and Assisted Living (AAL). Among functionality to be implemented, a major role is covered by falls and human activities monitoring. In this paper, main technological solutions to cope with the aforementioned needs are briefly introduced. A specific focus is given on solutions for Falls recognition and classification. A case of study is presented, where a classification methodology based on an event-driven correlation paradigm and an advanced threshold-based classifier is addressed. The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) theory is used to properly define thresholds' values while, in order to properly assess performances of the classification methodology proposed, dedicated metrics are suggested, such as sensitivity and specificity. The solution proposed shows an average Sensitivity of 0.97 and an average Specificity of 0.99.
