DALIA – Assistant for Daily Life Activities at Home




DALIA stands for “Assistant for Daily Life Activities at Home”. The project goals are to provide an integrated home system that supports older adults as primary end-users, offers support to their informal carers as secondary end-users, and can be extended to interface with services of formal care and medical services.
