The aim of Virgilius is to increase independency and mobility of seniors through the use of location services. By taking advantage of the latest technological advances in mobile devices, the project provides continuous support in the seniors’ daily life. A strong focus is placed on increasing their autonomy and security outside of their own homes with the help of specially adapted navigation tools. This allows them to easily orient themselves in environments that might otherwise be perceived as too challenging, such as hospitals and museums. Ultimately, the result is an increase in the seniors’ sense of confidence, safety and well-being.
