Independent Living and Increased Mobility
for Mobility Impaired and Elderly People through
New Integrated Services Suggestion for Further
Activities

An invitation to co-operate
  • Newcastle University (http//www.ncl.ac.uk) and
    Mobisoft Oy (www.mobisoft.fi), Finland have
    agreed upon co-operation activities aiming to
  • study and plan integrated service models,
    concepts, systems and IT applications to be used
    in the future to assist different public and
    private stakeholders to integrate the existing
    systems and services so that the participation,
    inclusion, equality, quality of life and mobility
    of especially impaired and other special users
    will increase.
  • These two organizations would like to invite all
    interested stakeholders to join together and to
    discuss the future actions needed.

3
Project Idea 1/3
  • The objective of the project would be to develop
    and integrate systems for passenger transport and
    appointment bookings, with special focus on
    public administration systems, databases and
    legislation.
  • The project idea has received a lot of support
    and interest especially in Finland and in the UK
    both from various ministries and healthcare,
    education and social sector authorities.

Project Idea 2/3
5
Project Idea 3/3
  • Results would be accessible and open-for-all
    concepts, integrated set of services and
    telematic systems to be used by advanced service
    centers.
  • These (call) centers would provide an integrated
    set of e-services so that the participation,
    equal access, inclusion and mobility for all
    citizens, but especially special users, increases
    and provision of public services becomes more
    effective and comprehensive.

6
Business objectives 1/2
  • Adapt and develop plans to utilize existing
    proven Demand Responsive Transport services,
    technologies, tools and methods so that users
    have integrated set of services for
  • ordering and booking appointments,
  • increasing mobility,
  • transporting people and small goods,
  • improving participation,
  • access of services, and
  • independent living.
  • Plan and report, how to use existing and emerging
    solutions and tools (GPRS network and phones,
    smart-phones, PDAs, on-board computers, GPS
    receivers, etc.).
  • Find/organise future pilot sites for these
    integrated applications and services.

7
Business objectives 2/2
  • Establish the evaluation framework which will
    make it possible to measure and analyse the
    impacts of the future pilot sites against the set
    objectives.
  • Assist different stakeholders public bodies,
    authorities, private service providers,
    end-users, etc. to plan pilots and possibilities
    for further deployment and use of project results
  • Disseminate and exploit experiences and findings
    on European wide scale
  • Stimulate market for integrated concepts and
    applications improving inclusion, mobility
    participation, and quality of life

8
Technologies and tools 1/2
  • The users of the services would be either
    registered or occasional customers and all their
    requirements will be taken into account by the
    planning system automatically. If the users are
    registered the service centre will automatically
    know their service history, special needs,
    personal profile etc.
  • The planning system would automatically suggest
    solutions and alternatives for the given
    situation and communicate between all the related
    stakeholders
  • The system would include communication
    technologies between different stakeholders,
    including the vehicles in the fleet providing the
    mobility/transport services

9
Technologies and tools 2/2
  • All activities and steps would be logged by the
    system
  • Digital map of the operational area to be used by
    service centre personnel and drivers having a
    suitable on-board-unit
  • GPS/Galileo positioning would be used to locate
    the vehicles and this data would be used by the
    service centre to provide effective mobility
    services
  • The system would include an alarm system so that
    no service request will be unintentionally
    forgotten
  • Advanced optimisation, routing and scheduling
    algorithms and several mobility patterns would be
    used in the system to provide the users with bets
    possible inclusion service
  • Communications between the service centre and
    mobile units would be based on GPRS or UMTS
    technology
  • The service centre may have a client-server or
    an ASP architecture.

10
Impacts to be evaluated
  • Economic Impacts
  • Service provision impacts
  • Technical impacts

11
Anticipated higher level benefits
  • Integration of modular networked services as part
    of service centres provides greater transport
    cohesion in target areas.
  • Improved access to local services and, with the
    help of feeder services, to larger centres.
  • Better mobility stimulates economic activities.
  • Improved mobility services for special users
    decrease social exclusion and help the users to
    participate equally.
  • Cost-effective services encourage creation of new
    services and attract new users.

12
Conclusions
  • Existing and proven flexible technologies tools
    and methods need to be adapted so that impaired
    users can be provided with the integrated set of
    services for ordering and booking appointments,
    increasing mobility, transporting people and
    small goods, improving participation,
    accessibility of services and independent living.
  • Pilots should be launched, operated and evaluated
    in different European Union Members States and in
    different environments (for instance within FP7).
    All interested are welcome to join the work.
  • Market for the integrated concepts and
    applications improving inclusion, mobility
    participation, and quality of life
    should be stimulated.
