Supporting the Development of Assistive Systems for Older People
J. D. Hallewell Haslwanter, M. Garschall - Supporting the Development of Assistive Systems for Older People - Proceedings of the 11th PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments Conference, Corfu, Greece, 2018, pp. 287-288
Assistive technologies to support aging in place are being widely promoted due to changing demographics. Although much time and money has been invested in the development of these types of systems, to date there are not many successful systems on the market. This highly interactive industrial workshop aims to help participants gain a better understanding of the issues that companies developing these technologies face. Together participants will develop ideas of what can be done to support more success in the future.
