Cognitive Village

The Cooperative project aims at the goal to connect learning and mobile technical solutions with existing individual living structures of older people and their social network (Cognitive Village). They should help the older people to an easier access to support in their local environment, so that they can still live autonomous to a great extent in spite of mental and physical deficits. These solutions should be kept simple to increase the technical, economic and political chance of realization. The perspective of the user as an older person and the social networks as well as further stakeholders, which are relevant for the care in the close environment, participatory design approaches secure an everyday live embedding and matching of the technical solutions. The solutions will be embedded in two different apartments and living complexes (section of a city and village) to identify the effects of the living environment on the technical solutions.
