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