Mobiserv – An Integrated Intelligent Home Environment for the Provision of Health, Nutrition and Well-Being Services to Older Adults


Welcome to Mobiserv – a European research project on smart technology, started in December 2009 and running until September 2013, by 8 partners from 7 countries, representing care organisations, universities, research institutions and industry.

This website is being kept as archive only. No news will be added anymore.

The objective of the Mobiserv project was to design, develop, and evaluate beyond-state-of-the-art technology to support independent living of older adults as long as possible, in their home or in various degrees of institutionalization, with a focus on health, nutrition, well-being, and safety.

ref_dag_1Support has been delivered in indoor daily living situations, and the implementation has been based on the user-acceptance of the technology and understanding of the user’s context of use in order to truly addresses user needs.

The Concept

Mobiserv has developed a personal intelligent platform consisting of various devices, middleware, and services. The Mobiserv platform consists of the following:

  • A social companion robot – an autonomous robot, containing processing power, data storage capability, various sensors, machine learning/experience gathering/adaptation, a touch screen, speech synthesis, and speech recognition;
  • Wearable smart clothes – implementing various functionalities such as monitoring of vital signs or sleeping patterns, and detection of falls;
  • A smart home environment – including smart sensors, optical recognition units, and home automation elements, to detect among others eating and drinking patterns, activity patterns, and dangerous situations.
