Wednesday 25 September 9:00-10:30
All over Europe, smart age-friendly environments are a well-established concept and the introduction of accessible IoT appliances offers an opportunity to empower senior citizens.
This workshop attempts to demystify the use of off-the-shelf IoT appliances for smart age-friendly environments by considering the choice between open and closed solutions and some of the consequences of that choice for end-users.
In this collaborative session, participants can aim to connect with other expert stakeholders and stimulate creative thinking through practical examples using popular IoT-based appliances and services. They will also develop awareness of how to enable old adults to design their own smart age-friendly environments.
The workshop will be broken down into four key stages:
The team of speakers is composed of four IoT expert engineers (Damon Berry, John McGrory, Paula Kelly, Michael Core) from Technological University Dublin and a Design Thinking researcher (Matteo Zallio) from Stanford University.
