Part 1 – The Geo IoT Transformation of Healthcare

In recent years we are witnessing a radical change within the health and care domain. The widespread availability of connected devices, including both clinical-grade and consumer devices, are contributing to a swift change from past healthcare paradigms and services models. Symmetrically, widespread development of city-wide sensors, which are capable to continuously collect information of relevance for public health and care, are unleashing new (big) data-driven scenarios and are paving the way to smart new businesses and services models around increasing needs of more sophisticated health and care systems. Such a paradigmatic changes are strengthened by a cultural change at societal level, whereby people of all age and social groups, are increasingly used to using connected technologies during their daily lives.

With such a fascinating and challenging scenario, GeoIoT is certainly set to play a key role also thanks to fast rising adoption of emerging technological enablers such as Location Based Services (LBS), Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN), to name but a few.

Preliminary Agenda:

KEYNOTE The Role of GeoIoT in Health and Care and Emerging Trends

Manuel Pérez

GeoIoT and New Service Models for an Ageing Population. A Fast Expanding Market

Florian Bousquet

Low Power and High Performance GNSS: How to enable New e-Health Market Opportunities

Leonardo Lizzi

The potential role of LPWAN in the Silver Economy

Benoit Vivier

How GNSS can improve the work of emergency services

– Emergency calls located today through the network, which results in a poor average accuracy of 2km
– Using AML open-source technology (GNSS & Wifi) to locate emergency calls in a more accurate way
– Activated in 6 countries, development in the context of the Help 112 project with the European Commission (DG GROW) and the GSA

Part 2 – UNCAP Workshop
Location uses for care services and sensor data interoperability in Health and Care

The UNCAP project (Ubiquitous iNteroperable Care for Ageing People) develops a platform based on open industrial standards able to to help ageing people live independently.

Based on an open, scalable and privacy-savvy ICT infrastructure, UNCAP uses state-of-art physical/cognitive assessment tools together with technologies to locate objects, devices and users within indoor/outdoor spaces, to continuously monitor users in a non-invasive way and to assist them in case alert conditions are detected.

In particular, it will leverage on an ecosystem of biosensors and indoor & outdoor localisation solutions to deliver an infrastructure capable to continuously monitor and assist users in a non-invasive way.
