AgeWell provides an avatar on a mobile phone and robot (physically embodied device) based virtual coach for older employees supporting them through their transformation to retirement and beyond. It also supports companies to keep their employees motivated for longer time to share their knowledge and experience, also after the retirement. AgeWell helps employees and employers to work well cross-generationally. End-users will be involved in the project from the beginning following a user-centric approach and will be recruited by the help of end-user organizations and larger companies. Since AgeWell follows a holistic approach by providing guidance when the user ages and needs assistance, a second end-user group involving seniors in retirement will simulate this later phase of AgeWell usage in the trials.

With AgeWell, we engage the users for living healthier and happier
