Socially Adaptive Apps

Socially Adaptive Apps help to enlarge social participation of people in the neighborhood. We work on two applications, one focussing on children and the other on elderly. The first mobile application is designed for families with children between 9-12 years of age, to support them in their everyday activities (going to school, making new friends, etc.). The second application is designed for elderly people and their social network, to make them feel more safe and less dependent on other people.
