Life can be challenging for elderly people but thanks to this project, they will not need to leave their home. The “YourHouse 4.0” project deals with different everyday topics and offers solutions to how it is possible for elderly people to live independently – with the help of modern technology.
Digital technologies can increase the autonomy of people in need of care and allow them to stay at home or in their own apartment autonomously. Furthermore, they can relieve relatives or professional nurses of the task of taking care of them.
The lighthouse project, „Exemplary living environment for people in need of care: YourHouse 4.0“, aims at introducing smart technologies in a living environment. A first YourHouse 4.0 project has been running since the middle of 2018 in cooperation with the Deggendorf Institute of Technology – DIT. There will be a few more sample houses in Bavaria.
From 2019, another project is implemented by the Regensburg Institute of Technology. It is called “Telepresence-robot for care and support of stroke patients (TePUS)” and deals with general questions in social handling with technical care and health.
The third current project deals with practice-orientated methods and creative solutions to how to best enable elder people to maintain an independent life.
