The objective of the MonAMI project is to demonstrate that accessible, useful services for elderly and disabled persons living at home can be delivered in mainstream systems and platforms. This will be done in close cooperation with users and by involving key mainstream actors throughout the whole process.
The main innovation of the MonAMI project lies in demonstrating how a complex mix of technologies, many of them so far only validated under laboratory conditions can be brought together in a socially and economically viable way to facilitate inclusive access for elderly and disabled citizens.
This involves an improved understanding of how new technologies fit into the social and economic framework, tailoring systems and interfaces specifically to the requirements of the elderly and the disabled as well as adaptation and integration of emerging technologies. Although the project does not focus on technology development, the required adaptation and integration work as well as the experience to be gained from real world deployment will result in significant technical innovations. This is particularly true for the field of Ambient Intelligence which is so far very much limited to laboratory demonstrators and experiments.
Various services and applications will be selected and developed with a Design for All approach together with potential users in the following areas:
• Comfort applications: home control, personalised communication interface, activity planning
• Health: monitoring, medication
• Safety and security: safety at home, visitor validation, activity detection
• Communication and information
The project is coordinated by the Swedish Institute of Assistive Technology and has 13 other partners.
