CURE - Center for Usability Research & Engineering (until end Mar 2014)

The role of CURE in eWALL is three-fold: 
  • User involvement and user requirements analysis: CURE is responsible for leading the requirements analysis process, from the task of user profiling up to researching the field of ADL support technologies and driving the eWALL concept development.
  • Evaluation of eWALL in lab and field trials: CURE develops the evaluation framework for eWALL that includes the procedures, the tools and the setup that are used in the assessment of eWALL throughout its development.
  • Dissemination, exploitation and demonstration activities: CURE contributes to the scientific dissemination of WALL and leads the demonstration activities in Austria.
 
AIT - Research and Education Laboratory in Information Technologies

AIT's research will be centered on the following four areas: 
  • The selection or design of the devices and sensors to monitor the in-house activities, their networking and their reliable operation 
  • The processing of signals from these devices and sensors in order to extract context of the elderly home and its occupants, effectively transforming the home into a centre for perceived metadata, able to support eCare and eHealth services 
  • Metadata fusion and event reasoning, and 
  • System integration, validation, prototyping & deployment.


 
 
UPB - Universitatea Politehnica din Bucuresti

UPB will have the following roles in the project:
  • the development of the eWALL platform (semantic modelling, cloud middleware services and eWall system development).
  • the development of system requirements and contibutions to overall architecture definition 
  • the development of efficient sensor communication techniques the support of the overall system integration

 


 
  UKIM - Ss. Cyril and Methodius University in Skopje

UKIM is involved in all eWall packages. Its efforts are focused on the technical requirements and the interoperability issues of the eWall devices and platform and their integration, optimization, validation and evaluation within the entire eWall concept. UKIM will also participate in the development of the eWall large-scale demonstrator.
 
UOM - Javna Ustanova Univerzitet Crne Gore Podgorica (Centre for Telecommunications)

The research and practical experience that UoM-Centre for Telecommunication  has in the areas of wireless communications and communication networks will bring added value to eWALL consortium in: indoor propagation channel models, interference issues among different short and medium range wireless communication systems,improving PHY layer reliability and range of wireless sensor networks,energy efficient communications in sensor networks,addressing technical requirements for the specific use case scenarios,design and development of protocols guaranteeing reliable and secure communication for eHealth applications,analysis of the overall developed architecture, processing and fusion of heterogeneous collected data. The Centre will also have a significant role in dissemination activities.
 
 

TUS - Technical University of Sofia


TUS role in the project:
  • TUS is leader of WP5. 
  • TUS will contribute by analysis on requirements, identification of generic functions and definition of intelligent context-aware service bricks (Task 5.3). 
  • TUS will play a major role in the development of eWALL services and applications that use data and lifestyle patterns and information (Task 5.4) and the design and development of systems for decision-making and innovative services and applications.
