Within the AAL Joint Programme the MOBECS' projectconsortium (MOBility and Emergency Call System), develops a novel mobile emergency call system which offers use and security for indoor and outdoor to increase mobility. A special feature in advantage to other emergency applications, is a base station at home which allows evaluating and controlling of sensordata (as example, to check the health of users) and actuators to control other electronic devices (for example to turn off the heater after leaving the house if it has been forgotten). For a continuous user integration from the outset focus groups interviews were conducted already in the conception phase in order to analyze the needs of potential users at an early stage. To accommodate the needs of end-users in the development phase, evaluations of the developed prototypes took place: this is a Smartphone application for the end user and on the other hand the interfaces for the home emergency call Centre staff. The implementation and the results of the evaluation are documented in a Bachelor thesis. It will also show up problems and proposed instructions.
