Fortgeschrittene Technologien und Plattform für smartes assistiertes Leben

Forschungsförderungsprojekt

 Smart Home (SH) provides a promising approach to assisted living for the ageing population. Yet it still remains a challenge

to develop and deploy such solutions in a large scale due to the lack of an easy-to-use technology infrastructure and
application exemplars. This problem arises from the nature of the SH field: multidisciplinary, diverse in its applications, and
with multiple stakeholders. Whilst a one-size-fits-all technology infrastructure seems unlikely, alternatives are still missing. In
addition, an effective approach to cross-discipline, cross-sector understanding for best practices has so far not been seen.
ACROSSING addresses this problem by implementing a multidisciplinary cross-sector pan-European training network to
knock down barriers between disciplines and sectors and providing the ESRs with a broad training experience. ACROSSING
develops 15 topically complementary research projects covering four core research themes, and four main application
categories. By multidisciplinary collaborations and cross-sector interactions, the ESRs will develop flexible, interoperable
underlying technologies which are then applied to and evaluated in multiple real application scenarios, leading to four
specialised technology infrastructures and four best-practice application demonstrators. ACROSSING also deliver
comprehensive blended training by combining campus-based and industrial practice training, and perspectives on personal
development and social issues by well-established researchers and practitioners from academic, industry and user
organisations. Whilst the scientific focus is to challenge the traditional way of SH research to develop advanced technologies
and platforms, the training will train ESRs to establish links between research, real-world problems, innovation and personal
career. ACROSSING will share software and datasets using open source technologies, and promote findings and impact
through a number of measures, e.g. online, outreach events.
