Seed project: User performance data from a video-based application/platform

The main objective for this seed project within Linnaeus University Centre for Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) is to explore how user performance data from a newly developed video-based smartphone platform/application can be used to understand older adults’ (65+) user patterns and possible hindrances to the learning and improvement process of mobility and in physical activities of daily living.

What is a seed project?

A seed project is a minor project funded by a knowledge environment or a research group at the university. The aim is to launch and promote excellent research. Depending on the financier, a seed project may be to idenfify new or deepen existing collaborations, preferably cross-disciplinary ones, to explore possible research issues in a feasibility study, to collect empirical material, or to write an application for external funding.
