Several demos were presented in an attractive and interactive manner in an appropriately designed booth, showcasing the project’s potential for helping people live at home independently longer. Wide publicity of the project as well as valuable networking with other ICT stakeholders had occurred.
Dem@Care had successfully participated in the EU ICT Exhibition 2013 in Vilnius, Lithuania, from Nov 6 – 9, 2013. A simulation of a kitchen/living area had been set up, with tables, chairs, objects of daily living, where visitors can test the system and watch explanatory demos. They were able to play the role of a person with dementia, undertaking some of the daily activities examined in Dem@Care, recorded by ambient and wearable cameras.
