easy mob


The project is aimed at people with orientation difficulties, offering them assistance in complex confined environments, ie places both indoors and outdoors that present routes and possible obstacles that people with difficulties can not face without help. Specifically, the project starts from the idea of ​​applying domotics technologies to allow people with difficulties to interact autonomously with hospitals, universities, diagnostic centers, and other places that see a high level of their nature. influx of users of this type.

The aim of the home automation solutions that will be investigated and implemented as a prototype during the EasyMob project is to provide useful and usable information from users with different types of difficulty: subjects with motor or perceptive disabilities; users with problems of orientation and location in space; Older people. For each group specific solutions will be studied so that the assistance provided by the home automation technologies allows them to interact with the environment in a safe way and to benefit from the services offered, for example knowing the location in the structure or opening hours of a certain clinic, rather than being able to know where the safety exits of a building are located.

EasyMob will develop a system based on infrared (IR) transmitters and receivers capable of guiding people, providing indications on internal logistics, on the presence of possible obstacles and on the services of the environment in which they are located. Assistance can also be provided through mobile phones that, thanks to the use of Bluetooth, will be able to receive indications and maps useful for orientation in a visual-textual language understandable by the user with difficulty.
In order to improve the addressing functions, the IR system will be integrated with two-dimensional barcode readers (QRCode) terminals and intelligent light paths, able to signal through a color code of immediate comprehension, the ways to reach certain points to interior of districts with a complex configuration. The domotic system supporting the movement will be completed with displays for displaying information to the public.
The individual solutions will be tested at the Oncology Center of Aviano once the industrial research phase, by the project partners SOLARI, LUCI, MoBe and the University of Udine will be completed.
At Friuli Innovazione, in collaboration with the Technological Pole of Pordenone, it is up to the coordination of the project and the management of the dissemination activities

Industrial research

Starting from an initial study on the technologies to be used, in the industrial research phase we aim to design a digital infrared transmitter and receiver, to carry out a study of solutions for the use of mobile phones as a means of orientation, localization , content distribution, the definition of intelligent lighting paths and the definition of application scenarios and contextual content.
Experimental development
The purpose of the action is to develop prototypes of infrared transmission and reception devices, the central management software for peripheral devices, the solutions to be integrated into the light paths, a prototype of touch screen totems and embedded software for mobile devices. The final phase of the action is the definition and activation of a pilot project at the Oncology Center of Aviano.

EasyMob is a project funded by the ROP ERDF 2007-2013, Activity 1.1 b): "support for industrial research projects with a high systemic impact to strengthen research and innovation networks and technological innovation clusters".
The total value of the project is 2 million euros.
