The European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration General Assembly & Annual Forum 2013, will take place at Cork (Ireland) between 24 and 26 of September 2013.
Integrasys will present in this Forum the E-MOSION project. Please visit us.

Christopher Mayer (AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH, Health & Environment Department, Biomedical Systems) will present the paper “End-User Involvement in E-MOSION
Focusing on Mobility Services.”
The main objective of E-MOSION is to provide mobility services for older adults with age-related impairments. The idea is to help older adults in their daily routine activities far from home. The development and innovation process follows an iterative method where older adults are involved in the project from the beginning till the end. In the initial stage end-users were involved by means of a questionnaire and in focus groups. A result from the questionnaire was as expected that the reasons for getting around are manifold. Most of the participants mention shopping as the main reason for frequent mobility followed by visiting friends and cultural activities. Regarding the ways how people get around outside the responses show a broad spectrum. Walking, by car and by public transport services are the most prominent means. All in all the results highlighted the usefulness of the intended solution and revealed interesting insights which will be envisaged in the course of the project.
The 2013 ACM International Joint Conference on Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2013) was held from September 8-12, 2013, in Zurich, Switzerland.
Our partner Noldus presented the tool Tracklab, being developed/improved under the E-MOSION project. The paper was titled “TrackLab – An innovative system for location sensing, customer flow analysis and persuasive information presentation”.
TrackLab is a new tool for measurement, recognition and analysis of spatial behavior. Although a number of software packages have been developed which can, for instance, acquire tracking data or analyze that data, there is currently no one system which supports the entire workflow. TrackLab supports import from a wide variety of input formats, both real-time and offline. Furthermore a plug-in module is being developed which gives tracking data from a group of up to ten people on the basis of video images (that is, with no need for tags or similar). Once the location data is in the TrackLab software it can be visualized in a variety of ways and a statistical analysis report is generated. The analysis variables are based on established parameters for quantification of behavior based on location. The analysis helps you to gain insight into the spatial behavior of customers. For real-time applications of the system, the analysis variables can be used to control external software, for example presentation of information on a display when a person has followed a particular path through the shop.
