With ageing, travel becomes more and more complex. Physical and cognitive abilities may decline, and thus, elderly people may experience several problems that hinder them from travelling independently. One of the most difficult issues when addressing the problem of age-related travel restrictions is the heterogeneity of the ageing population. SOULMATE offers a non-intrusive and personalized mobility package that evolves with the end-user across his/her different life stages to ensure him/her to make secure trips. SOULMATE aggregates three types of mobility support: Indoor virtual training of a route, active routing during trips and monitoring by a coach at a distance during trips. For each individual, the desired or necessary functionalities can be chosen, based on his/her specific abilities and travel needs. The SOULMATE solution will be developed iteratively, in co-creation with end-users and stakeholders, and the package will be tested intensively, and evaluated in three countries (Belgium, The Netherlands and Austria) based on usability, technical and business aspects.
