Miraculous Life

This project aims to develop an innovative, user-centered technical solution: the Virtual Assistant (VSP). The VSP is designed to support persons from retirement age onward in their everyday lives, affording them greater safety.

Fraunhofer IDMT


Mobile technologies that offer assistance to older persons anywhere they go, and that automatically activate an emergency call in dangerous situations.

Fraunhofer IPA


“MobiNa“ is a mobile robot developed at Fraunhofer IPA that can be used as a communication platform in an emergency, e. g., in the case of a person falling.


A telemedically assisted therapy and training environment which supports patients in properly carrying out rehabilitation exercises at home and when on the move.

Projects O-P

Fraunhofer IESE, IAO, IIS


The goal of “OASIS“ is to develop an open reference architecture that supports the collaboration and interconnection of new and existing services for older people in the areas of independent living, autonomous mobility, and intelligent work environments.

Fraunhofer IDMT


Sound-based control of building services, security technology, and multimedia devices for persons with speech impairments.

Fraunhofer IGD


Intelligent environments can help older persons manage everyday activities. The Fraunhofer IGD leads the architectural platform specification and designs the intelligent middleware.

Fraunhofer IAO

Pflege 2020

Development of innovative service and technology concepts to ensure individualized and need-based care.

Fraunhofer IGD


The objective of the EU project “POSEiDON“ is the integration of persons with Down syndrome in society and the support of their independence in managing everyday challenges.

Projects Q-R
