Assistive technologies: using it to keep people independent

Developing intelligent home appliances to keep people independent


The population of the EU is getting older – and it’s a simple fact that as people get older, they find it harder to carry out the basic domestic activities they would have found easier in their younger days. Working with partners from several other countries as well as the UK, the Centre for Applied Internet Research (CAIR), a research group at Glyndŵr University, recently completed a substantial EU project under the FP6 IST funding programme. The £2m EASYLINE+ project developed a range of intelligent home appliances for use by elderly and disabled people - allowing people to live longer independent lives. Washing machines that warn users when colours are mixed together and fridges which sound a warning when left open were among the devices tested.This talk gives an overview of the project and considers some of the wider applications of Assistive Technologies.
