ACTIVAGE (ACTivating InnoVative IoT smart living environments for AGEing well)
ACTIVAGE is building the first European interoperable and open IoT ecosystem enabling the deployment, at large scale, of a wide range of Active & Healthy Ageing IoT based solutions and services. To achieve this, ACTIVAGE is integrating thousands of devices to collect and analyse older adults’ environmental and lifestyle information, identify their needs, and provide customized solutions, ensuring users’ data privacy and security.
The ACTIVAGE project takes base on these arguments, with the primary objective of developing evidence and bringing to life the positive impact of the technologies and solutions that are based on the IoT in order to improve the quality of life, the health and the autonomy of older adults. And all this, with the aim to ensure the sustainability of social and health systems in Europe.
This large-scale pilot will actively involve nearly 10,000 older persons across nine deployment sites in seven different European Union countries. It is important to highlight that ACTIVAGE ambition is that end users from the different sites are involved in the piloting of several use cases, in such a way that it is considered a single pilot and not the sum of different pilots with diverged ambitions.
This has been thought intentionally to simulate real conditions that will emerge in an IoT-enabled European society sharing a homogenized offering of interoperable services, in order to maximize the adoption and minimize the effects of market fragmentation.
