Austria Austria Austria Austria /2010-/2012

Austria / Germany / Greece / Netherlands

The HOMEdotOLD project aims to provide a TV-based platform with cost-effective services that will be delivered in a personalised and intuitive way and will advance the social interaction of elderly people, aiming at improving the quality and joy of their home life, bridging distances and reinforcing social voluntariness and activation, thus preventing isolation and loneliness.

HOMEdotOLD is an ICT-based project that uses the TV medium in order to deliver a number of cost-effective services to elderly people. The targeted services are expected to advance the social interaction of elderly people by bridging distances and reinforcing social voluntariness and activation, thus preventing isolation and loneliness.

The project main objectives are to provide a technological platform to provide services allowing the elderly to stay socially active and to bridging distances and supporting elderly people’s existing roles.

HOMEdotOLD is primarily based on the Philips NetTV platform and secondarily on the A1TA AonTV platform. More specifically, the whole bouquet of services is being implemented and provided to the users of the Greek, Austrian and Dutch pilot sites.

The HOMEdotOLD international consortium includes three partners who ensure the direct involvement of elderly users throughout the project lifetime, including requirements collection phase of the project, as well as the pilot trial activities that will take place at least twice during the project.

Among the expected results and impact of the project:

  • Personal motivation services, i.e. services for staying socially active, preventing loneliness and isolation, enabling voluntariness, motivation and activation;
  • Social networking services: i.e. services for bridging distances and supporting existing role;
  • A business plan for the deployment of the HOMEdotOLD services.
