Acronym MOBILE.OLD (Reference Number: aal-2011-4-078)
Duration 01/06/2012 - 01/06/2014
Project Topic The MOBILE.OLD project aims to provide a combined smartphone and TV-based service infrastructure with residential and outdoor services that will be delivered in a highly personalised and intuitive way and will advance the mobility of older persons. The services will be provided in a cost-effective way aiming at independent living and sustained mobility, reinforcing activation, maintaining the health status, providing cognitive benefits, thus preventing isolation, depression, increased morbidity and loneliness. MOBILE.OLD will be based on existing successfully established platforms in the frame of AAL (HERA AAL-2008-1-079 and HOMEdotOLD AAL-2009-2-130) and the services to be deployed will be built on top of these service platforms, which are currently operational in Austria, the Netherlands and Greece. MOBILE.OLD will deliver an open platform and services advancing the mobility of older persons and within the project the focus will be on the development of the following four (4) main categories of services: - Informational services for assisting mobility, i.e. services that filter out, either “passively” or “actively”, existing information related to mobility. - Travel and transport services, i.e. services enhancing trans-national mobility. - Services for cognitive impaired people, i.e. services assisting the mobility of older persons suffering from cognitive impairments. - Physical and mobility training services, i.e. services maintaining good health status as well as cognitive games assisting in overcoming situations that older persons may encounter when being mobile. The project results will be: - The MOBILE.OLD set of services with intelligent multimodal, highly adaptive interfaces, which will be deployed on top of the already operational services infrastructure in Austria and the Netherlands as well as in Spain (new) and Romania (new). - The business plan for the commercialisation of the MOBILE.OLD services at the end of the project.
