Last October, the second assembly of this European project took place, which in addition to serving as a physical meeting point between the different companies and organizations involved, led to the analysis of the first pilot tests carried out in different countries.
After the first meeting held in Vigo at the beginning of the year, on 19 and 20 October the two representatives of imatia in this project were transferred to Cyprus: Sira López and Cibrán Ledo. The second assembly passed successfully and the various companies showed their progress in each of the project areas. A total of seven companies, coordinated by the Cyprus Institute of Neuroscience and Technology (CNTI), and based in five different countries of the European Union: Gluk Advice (Netherlands), Compexin SA – CPX (Romania), Dom upokojencev Nova Gorica – DUNG (Slovenia), Development Center of Information and Communication Technologies Savinja Žalec, Ltd – RC-IKTS (Slovenia), Ana Aslan International Foundation (Romania) and Strovolos Municial Multi-Functional Foundation – SMMFF (Cyprus); In addition to the imatia itself.
Some of the main issues to be addressed were related to the first pilots currently being carried out with older people in three of the consortium countries: Cyprus, Romania and Slovenia. The aim of these first pilots is to teach potential users the first versions of some Smart TV apps. These applications, which have been specially designed for them, allow us to know firsthand their opinion on aspects such as colors, usability, how to iterate with apps, etc. They are applications that are still in the process of development, so this feedback will allow to make important improvements on them and the product in general.
The project has been co-financed by the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda and by the AAL Program of the European Union.
