Active@Work

The Active@Work project addresses the development and deployment of a web based solution, centered on helping senior workers in their roles within the organisation, providing services to streamline their integration and responsibilities .Advanced wearable multi-sensors will be provided  to monitor  each individual health status, the project will study how the compliance of monitoring with (advanced) wearable devices can be improved in order to generate value information about the health status of the user in the working environment. To assure that the Active@Work prototype addresses market needs, end-users will be involved since an early stage of the project execution, overcoming some of the limitations of existing market solution. The two pilots to be deployed will cover heterogeneous organizational processes on various working environments (local and mobile). To achieve that, an extensive and diverse range of users will be included in order to bring the solution closer to the end-users real needs.

Objectives:

The Active@Work project will provide a web based solution with a Virtual Assistant tool to assist
adult workers to continue executing their daily work within the organisation. Advanced multi-sensors
will be provided to monitor each individual health status. The solution will incorporate an “intelligent agent” that will assist the user in accomplishing his/her work without compromising his/her health and preventing any other risk derived from fatigue or stress at work. Using a Design Science Research (DSR) approach, end-user concerns will be considered from multiple perspectives. To warrant that the Active@Work prototype addresses market needs, the end-users will be involved during the project development and test phases. Active@Work pilots will cover heterogeneous organizational processes in various working environments. The solution will be tested in two pilots: the first one will take place within a multinational consulting company in Spain and the second one in a leisure park in Belgium.

Expected results and impact:

(1) The capability of detecting and monitoring a set of bio-parameters through the use of multi-sensor wearable devices (2) A cognitive system capable of understanding the conditions of the work environment and a catalogue of services to assist the users in their daily work (3) A collaborative platform for interactions and sharing of experiences among older and younger employees. (4) Senior workers will exercise and raise their cognitive skills or recover their skill levels within a training environment. (5) The solution will be deployed in a multinational consulting company in Spain and a leisure park in Belgium.
