The objective of the Guiding Light project being developed by UCT Research in Austria is to develop, tentatively implement and empirically evaluate an intelligent assistance system aiming to maintain and improve the indoor and outdoor mobility of older people.
This goal is to be achieved by enhancing the spatial and temporal orientation of elderly people by means of a guiding system based on ambient light.
UCT Research intends to extend knowledge about the impact of an effective lighting on the well-being and comfort of older people, and translate this into a cost-effective open solution.
This solution should assist older adults in living at home autonomously for a longer time and help them accomplish their daily activities.
