LISA “Habitec" (Habitat, Bits and Technology in an Ageing Society)


User feedback and evaluation conducted in the project LISA formed the starting point for the follow-up project LISA "Habitec" (Habitat, Bits and Technology in an Ageing Society) which deals with installing RmRs (Robotic Micro-Rooms) within the entire apartment, thus expanding the system to further Life Centers. RmRs are designed in a way that they do not replace existing walls, and can facilitate cost effective affordable solutions for elderly people, even those with limited income or resources. Furthermore, the RmRs are planned in a way that for each life center in the home environment, an individual “terminal” is deployed. Thus, each “terminal” is designed and developed according to the associated life center and according to the technologies and services that the user requires with respect to the corresponding ADLs. LISA habitec focuses on pre-embedding assistive functions in a modular element as a kind of furniture or cabinet, which can be later installed in the room without requiring refurbishment of the existing interior. Because of the concentration of the assistive functions in a single terminal, a compact element arises which is efficiently produced and can be easily installed within the apartment.

Whereas LISA focused on the development of a single RmR (Entrance), in LISA Habitec networked RmRs for all key Life Centers (body care, food, working, living, relaxing, entrance area) will be developed, tested and evaluated.
