OASIS - Ontology-Driven, Open Reference Architecture and System

OASIS introduces an innovative, Ontology-driven, Open Reference Architecture and System, which will enable and facilitate interoperability, seamless connectivity and sharing of content between different services and ontologies in all application domains relevant to applications for the elderly and beyond. The OASIS System is open, modular, holistic, easy to use and standards abiding. It includes a set of novel tools for content/services connection and management, for user interfaces creation and adaptation and for service personalization and integration. Through this new Architecture, over 12 different types of services are connected with the OASIS System for the benefit of the elderly, covering user needs and wants in terms of Independent Living Applications (nutritional advisor, activity coach, brain and skills trainers, social communities platform, health monitoring and environmental control), Autonomous Mobility and Smart Workplaces Applications (elderly-friendly transport information services, elderly-friendly route guidance, personal mobility services, mobile devices, biometric authentication interface and multimodal dialogue mitigation and other smart workplace applications). Applications are all integrated as a unified, dynamic service batch, managed by the OASIS Service Centre and supporting all types of mobile devices (tablet PC, PDA, smartphone, automotive device, ITV, infokiosk, etc.) and all types of environments (living labs, sheltered homes, private homes, two car demonstrators, public transport, DSRT, etc.) in 4 Pilot sites Europewide. As user friendliness and acceptability is a top priority for the project, a user centred-design approach is followed along the service and application development. Tested iteratively and thoroughly by hundreds of end users, their caregivers and other stakeholders, the OASIS System and applications will be optimized and submitted for standardization by the purpose-established OASIS world-wide Industrial Forum.

EWORX will contribute in the coordination of the development of new ontologies, in the development of the Content Connector and Ontology Management Tools and Interfaces, the design and development of the Social Communities Platform, the Tourism Support Services and Leisure and Social Activities Support Services within the Personal Mobility context, the Integration on the Devices and in the compilation of Cost Effective, Business Scenarios and Exploitation. Moreover, EWORX is the Activity Leader for activities A1.3.3, A3.4.4, A3.4.5 and A5.4.2

This project is co-financed by the European Commission (7th Framework Programme), and is part of the "e-Inclusion: be part of it!" campaign of the European Commission.
