An European public-private consortium is teaming up to develop next-generation technology to allow older people live independent life at home.

The project will have two goals: to develop new ways of integrating assistive technology, telecare and telehealth solutions into users’ homes to provide assistance; and to investigate the motor, sensory and cognitive difficulties experienced by older people and the best vision, voice or sensory-based means of communicating with users.

Technology communicating with humans? Old people living all alone by them selves? Pity.

I’d be happy to bring my Personal EU philosophy into this project to guarantee, that the development doesn’t lead to an era where people just communicate WITH technology – when they should interact with eachothers UTILIZING technology.

Innovative interactivity, between older EU people, too!
