Abstract: The goal of this paper is to present AUSILIA, a project aimed at developing and integrating solutions to foster independent living of subjects affected by disabilities or recovering from traumas. AUSILIA exploits the synergies and competences acquired by the partners in the domain of assisted living and rehabilitation, implementing an advanced technological infrastructure capable of monitoring and analyzing the activities conducted by the users within the premises of the living lab. Thanks to the capability of carrying out automatic analysis of the ongoing events and the interaction of the user with the surrounding environment and objects, it will be possible to determine the best set of aids to support an independent living as soon as they return back home.

Abstract: Living labs are spaces where public and private stakeholders work together to develop and prototype new products, technologies and services in real environments embedded in the community or market place. This paper outlines the approach chosen by AUSILIA (Assisted Unit for Simulating Independent Living Activities), a living lab established in Provincia Autonoma di Trento in 2016 to develop an innovation model for taking care of the elderly or disabled patient by fusion of technology innovation and patient centered integrated care approach. AUSILIA goal is triple: i. to provide an innovative framework based on augmented virtual reality for occupational therapy in ageing and fragile individuals; ii. to help people who are losing autonomy and independence living at home reducing care burden; iii. warrant continuous innovation through the mixed contribution of the academy and private enterprise. The paper describes the specific solutions adopted for the three objectives, reporting an implementation example for each of them.
