I worked in the project from the beginning, in the original idea of the project to win the H2020 call.
I am the Project Coordinator at ITCL, that lead the whole project. I participate in all the consortium meetings and in the meetings of several of the work packages. We are involved in several technologies, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Deep Learning, 3D avatars... I am also involved in technical decisions and approaches to the whole project.
The consortium is formed by 12 partners from 7 countries.
WorkingAge is a Horizon 2020 European project Nº 826232, led by ITCL, started in May 2019 and currently under development.
WorkingAge will use innovative HCI methods (augmented reality, virtual reality, gesture/voice recognition and eye-tracking) to measure the user emotional/cognitive/health state and create communication paths. At the same time with the use of IoT sensors will be able to detect environmental conditions. The purpose is to promote healthy habits of users in their working environment and daily living activities in order to improve their working and living conditions.
By studying the profile of the >50 (Year old) workers and the working place requirements in three different working environments (Office, Driving and Manufacturing), both profiles (user and environment) will be considered. Information obtained will be used for the creation of interventions that will lead to healthy ageing inside and outside the working environment. WorkingAge will test and validate an integrated solution that will learn the user’s behaviour, health data and preferences and through continue data collection and analysis will interact naturally with the user. This innovative system will provide workers assistance in their everyday routine in the form of reminders, risks avoidance and recommendations. In this way, the WorkingAge project will create a sustainable and scalable product that will empower their user's easing their life by attenuating the impact of aging in their autonomy, work conditions, health and well-being.
