LÁZARO is a project carried out alongside Valoriza Servicios a la Dependencia S.L.U., with the objective of developing a system to automatically detect architectural barriers making use of computer vision and augmented reality. It will integrate the detection provided by sensors and images and the display of an augmented reality layer, together with a warning and checking system for the barriers.
In addition to the first objective, the project pursues another important goal, the development of a wireless sensor network to monitor the living conditions of people with special needs, such as elderly or disabled people. Therefore, the system will result in an integral solution for assisted living facilities and residences, although it can be applied to several other environments.
The project details are as follows:
Title: LÁZARO: Development of an innovative ICT system for the detection of architectural barriers and monitoring based on augmented reality
Partners: Valoriza Servicios a la Dependencia S.L.U. and Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
Financing entity: Valoriza Servicios a la Dependencia S.L.U. via CDTI.
