Smart Bear
Smart Big Data Platform to Offer Evidence-based Personalised Support for Healthy and Independent Living at Home

The aim of SMART BEAR is to integrate heterogeneous sensors, assistive medical and mobile devices to enable the continuous data collection from the everyday life of the elderly, which will be analysed to obtain the evidence needed in order to offer personalised interventions promoting their healthy and independent living. The SMART BEAR platform that will be developed in the project, will also be connected to hospital and other health care service systems to obtain data of the end users (e.g., medical history) that will need to be considered in making decisions for interventions.

SMART BEAR will leverage big data analytics and learning capabilities, allowing for large scale analysis of the above mentioned collected data, to generate the evidence required for making decisions about personalised interventions. Privacy-preserving and secure by design data handling capabilities, covering data at rest, in processing, and in transit, will cover comprehensively all the components and connections utilized by the SMART BEAR platform. The SMART BEAR solution will be validated through five large-scale pilots involving 5.000 elderly living at home in Greece, Italy, France, Spain, and Romania.

ATC will lead the Requirements & SMART BEAR platform Design Work Package, will be responsible for the development of the SMART BEAR mobile application, will contribute to SMART BEAR platform integration and testing and will provide technical support for the Greek Pilot.

The project started in September 2019 and will have a duration of 48 months.
