Recent advances in ICT technologies provide opportunities for deploying age-friendly working environments, on the basis of appropriate structuring of working tasks, ergonomic design of the surrounding environment, systems that facilitate the elderly to manage their everyday task, as well as tools which provide cognitive and emotional support. Despite the proliferation of these technologies and their deployment in occupation spaces, there have been no efforts for systematically combining them towards transforming working environments into age friendly environments. PEARL’s main goal is to enable the development and deployment of ICT-based ergonomic and moving age-friendly workspaces, on the basis of a unique blending of leading edge ICT technologies for smart working environments.
