The problem l.jpg
The problem

  • European population is getting older (lower fertility & longer life expectancy)

  • 20% of Europeans are unable to read exclusion from the use of transport facilities

  • E&D are excluded from ICT technology services; such services are not designed for all:

    • Inappropriate/complex UI

    • Jargon-inhibiting, and too-often irrelevant youth-market focused content

E d needs from assistive ict services l.jpg
E&D needs from assistive ICT services

  • Easily used “one stop shop” service and information delivery sites, offering relevant and integrated content as needed; i.e. age-concerned info on travel, accessible transport and accommodation, events and sites of interest, and "how to" advice on getting there.

  • Data delivery alternative methods that will adapt the information context and the user interface to individual abilities, interest and preferences, whether derived from the user profile or implied by the user’s habits.

  • Geo-referenced services, that allow the user to request info and services “nearby”.

  • Integrated general-market services, that enable access to any information, with full choice, and ability to purchase the relevant service in a convenient and worry-free way.

The aim of ask it l.jpg
The aim of ASK-IT

  • ASK-IT aims at developing an extended ambient intelligence space for the integration of functions and services for elderly and disabled people across various environments (car, bus, airplane, home, work, leisure and sport).

  • ASK-IT focuses on geo-referenced and personalised transport and tourism services.

  • Emphasis is on seamless service provision, independent on the media, user location (i.e. indoors, outdoors, in a city, during a trip, etc.), user type and residual abilities.

Ask it characteristics l.jpg
ASK-IT characteristics

  • Mediation of services and content.

  • Seamless environment management, everywhere, anytime and by many mobile and/or fixed means.

  • User preference (i.e. restaurant, hotel preference, etc.) and context-related driven process (i.e. tourist, commuter, businessman, etc.).

  • Flexible geo-referenced services combining multimodal travel information.

  • User confidence service environment.

Ask it objectives 1 l.jpg
ASK-IT objectives (1)

  • Develop an open and modular service platform, offering a transparent central point from which to coordinate incoming end user data (user request) and outgoing service provider data (provider response).

  • Connect the new services to emerging ITS applications.

  • Develop advanced key services, e.g. navigation, localisation, route guidance, e-commerce, e-payment, personal assistance, e-learning, e-working, social relations and community building services.

Ask it objectives 2 l.jpg
ASK-IT objectives (2)

  • Develop an iPDA, based on intelligent mobile phones and PDAs, able to configure itself according to the specific needs of the person.

  • Develop the appropriate connection of this device to key assistive technologies (such as domotics, emergency management, driver support aids, computer accessibility, etc.) and web services.

Future mobile phones of ASK-IT manufacturers to be used as potential intelligent platforms.
