Express to Connect (E2C)
The E2C project spans over three years (ending March 2013) and is funded by the Ambient Assistent Living (AAL) joint programme. Halmstad Living Lab has a project budget of 746.245 euro with national funding from VINNOVA. The E2C proposal focuses on finding a solution to the very challenging issues and problems concerning:
seniors’ internal experience of loneliness as this is strongly
associated with dissatisfaction with life.
The project integrates the individual and societal level with the commercial perspectives in four European countries with the help of Living Lab approaches. E2C aims to offer ways and occasions for communities among the users to be created, as it will intensify interaction, communication and dialogue between the users and contribute to the feeling of wellbeing, self esteem and belonging.
The main results of
the project can be divided into three subcategories:

Secure at Home –
Smart Locks is a VINNOVA funded project where two technology
companies are cooperating with researchers and end-users in the
development process of an IT-demonstrator. The idea to the
demonstrator was generated by users in previous Living Lab
activities. The IT-demonstrator aims to mitigate the problems
connected to safety and security for elderly people living alone at
home. Furthermore it will also provide enhanced communication
possibilities between for example a caretaker, a caregiver and next
of kin to the elderly.

This two year project targets the challenge of designing ubiquitous media services for a multitude of devices and contexts to be consumed anytime and anywhere. Common issues have been identified, such as integration and maintenance, use and adoption of multi-channel services and interaction models. Targeting this challenge, the proposed project will be conducted as an action research effort where newspaper firms collaborate with researchers. Expected results from this project include guidelines for newspaper firms seeking ubiquitous infrastructure support for profitable media services that leverage user value.
We proudly present the three movie clips, featuring Albin, Diana and Maria, that is one of the results from our UbiMedia project. The material to the movie clips was developed in collaboration with our nine newspaper partners. The movie clips was produced by Quincy.
