Demo for Porto Canal

The Porto Canal channel made a news piece about Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS.

The Deus Ex Machina (DEM) project was hilighted. This project focuses on benefits for users in the future by building a technological response to societal challenges. This project comprises sub-projects in diverse fiels: agriculture, nutrition, health, mind and behaviour, activity monitoring, and community tools.

The research within the DEM project is supported by National Funds and counts with partnerships of other six research centres from the northern region of Portugal. The aim of this project is to improve the quality of life of the population through technology.

The user is at the centre of the research. Researchers begin by understanding their needs and the way they perceive technology. Two volunteers from the user network COLABORAR participated in a demo to show a project related to fall prevention. They performed some physical exercises guided by software on TV.

Our thanks to the participants!
