INFINITy is an ICT based solution addressed to promote Quality of Life and independence in people with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) even though solution is valid and useful for any senior. INFINITy solution is based on an app plus a wristband and a set of NFC tags that provides a set of services indoors and outdoors as reminders, fast phone calls, guidance, Points of Interest (PoIs) and activity assessment. Below, you can find some snapshots of the app and a selection of customisable NFC tags.
A new solution for extending autonomy of people with MCI
INFINITy, a product and service for supporting people with MCI in indoor and outdoor environments.
The INFINITy system is based on the integration of mature technological Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions: the Daily Function Assistant service that has been piloted widely in the IN LIFE project (H2020 – 643442), the Point of Interest Mapping system tested in City4Age project (H2020 – 689731), and the Near-by-System communication module of TAG CLOUD (FP7 – 600924), all above TRL level 5 before the project and nowadays, they have reached TRL 7 and 8.
Daily Function Assistant (DFA)
This service enables users to be assisted in their daily life activities by means of the Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. The DFA application allows creating physical smart tags that automatize a wide set of functions addressing different challenges such as, identifying objects, controlling the mobile phone, etc. Users can naturally scan the pre-configured smart tags in order to automatically trigger an action.
Point of Interest Mapping
This system captures relevant information regarding the mobility of a user within an open area, mapping Points of Interest (POIs) frequently visited by the user. The POI mapping application allows detecting and monitoring activities performance in open spaces, and creates a functional map based on detected information.
A notification triggering system based on BLE enabled beacons able to provide notifications when use is nearby a specific POI, according to a pre-defined range of proximity.
INFINITy has integrated the above components in a transparent, easy to use mobile application able to: (1) provide a prompt intervention in case of behavioural change; (2) enable personalisation of POIs; (3) provide orientation support in open environments; and (4) monitor the performance of users’ daily activities. Through the matchmaking layer of the integrator, the mapping among the users and activities performed into a specific context are selected based on rule-base matchmaking techniques, statistical approaches and service semantics.
