This goal of this research project is to advance the mobility of elderly people. This should be achieved by providing a combined smartphone and TV-based service infrastructure with residential and outdoor services that will be delivered in a highly personalised and intuitive way. The services aim at independent living and sustained mobility of elderly people. The Department of Mobile Computing will contribute by developing a set of mobile services for mental and physical training. These applications will allow elderly people to prepare for certain mobility situations in advance on the one hand, and they will provide situation-dependent assistance when the elderly person is mobile on the other hand.
