EASY-IMP is aiming to develop methodologies, tools and platforms for the design and production of personalised products, combining wearable intelligent sensors with mobile and cloud computing.
Funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration, the EASY infrastructure will enable all interested 3rd parties to offer new services to smart phone users, thus evolving into an open platform of literally infinite applications in many target markets.
More specifically EASY will focus on the following pilot applications:
- Outdoor video games
- Personal training
- Functional rehabilitation
- Assisted living for the elderly and handicapped
The selected application scenarios will include among other miniature motion, skin-temperature, and skin-conductivity sensors. The project will build up-on existing games, sport and training applications for testing and demonstration purposes, while focusing on the development of the methodological Meta-Product framework. It will develop guidelines and standards, methodologies, and reference-architectures for the design and production of smart garments.
