Exposanità, Fiera di Bologna - 40127 Bologna (BO)
Pavillion n.19 stand n.A68

HABITAT will participate also this year to Exposanità, an event featuring the latest generation of services, products and solutions that companies and industry professionals study, design and innovate every day, to make healthcare management more efficient and person’s care process more effective. The project will be showed, together with the others exhibiting areas, in the one dedicated to the Third Age, which faces themes as the ones of ageing and care of the delicate person.

The project aims to study a platform that allows to communicate daily life objects (like beds, radios, armchairs, clocks etc) through to the use of the technologies of the Internet of Things (IoT) such as radio frequency, wearable electronics, wireless sensor networks and artificial intelligence.

Making these objects interactive with each other will also provide long-term assistive life spaces with a restrained impact on the environment. Smart objects will be able to adapt progressively to the needs of the person, ensuring total autonomy in meeting the primary needs.

So as to see how these ideas will be put into practice, the visitors of the fair will have the opportunity to participate to the use of the platform thanks to some practical demonstrations, which will be set in a living area aptly built inside the stand area with the contribution of Ergotek, where will be involved some IoT technologies while embedded in everyday objects.
