Abstract

We focus on finding the appropriate working method to enhance end-user value for aging-inplace. Older adults prefer to stay in their own environment and enjoy remaining independent and socially integrated. However, our current built environment is largely unsuitable for Aging-in-Place. The objective of this research is to test a working method for analyzing ADL (Activities of Daily Living), and to automate, robotize or mechanize those that are problematic. Novice designers (MSc students in Architecture and Building Services) analyzed an ADL by observation, and formulated observed problems and their elements. Secondly the students designed methodically an improvement. Thirdly, the newly designed solution was validated in an expert discussion. It appeared that by developing new concepts in a systematic way, end-user value gets in focus and is enhanced. This research gives more insight in teaching a symbiotic society where robotic application and human beings share the same sphere of living.
