Captain uses micro projectors to provide a smart home assistant for older adults whenever and wherever it is needed, leaving their cozy place as it is when there is no need.

15 partners in 10 countries are working on CAPTAIN including Dr. Unai Diaz-Orueta of Maynooth University.

Radically new HCI
CAPTAIN introduces new tangible interaction means, based on Projected Augmented Reality in AAL Environments

Indoor monitoring
Collection and analysis of emotional, behavioural and physiological data through unobtrusive means

Personalized guidance
Motivation engine designed to engage users in healthy nutritional and exercise habits, cognitive activities and social interactions.

Physical and cognitive training
Physical and cognitive training through serious games to increase engagement levels

A set of open APIs will be released to allow further extensions and adoption of CAPTAIN by third parties, including researchers and private companies.

Stakeholders community
Relying on the living labs’ power, CAPTAIN’s builds the “CAPTAIN Stakeholders’ community”

Agile requirements elicitation
the “Stakeholders’ community”, will be the only official source of requirements towards continuous co-creation throughout the project.

Real world scenario
CAPTAIN will be tested in three Living Labs (Thess-AHALL, INTRAS Living Lab, 27 Delvalle and AUSILIA) as well as in real homes of volunteer older adults.
