Researchers at Fraunhofer AICOS are working in a new application to be integrated in the SmartCompanion system.
We have in our team a student from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto. She is carrying out field work, namely interviews with older adults within her work of user research. The student will be using the insights to build a smartphone application and she is applying human-computer interaction principles in her work, specifically for the elders, since the user interfaces of this app should be simple and easy to read to the user.
We expect to test the prototype with volunteers in the network very soon!
