Abstract

In this paper, we define the requirements of coordination feature for an existing tele-presence platform. OldBirds is game-like cross-platform application for caregivers to assist senior citizens in daily life, and it provides one-to-many remote caregiving services. We strongly believe that social activity is an important element to improve the quality of life while aging-in-place. Empirical study is conducted to define requirements of coordination feature which can facilitate social event organizing. We evaluate a social event through observation, interviews and qualitative studies. By defining a case scenario, it is validated that a coordination tool should be designed to include rich communication platform, instant messaging, reminders, shared calendar, and positioning system. These features are developed as a coordination plug-in for OldBirds tele-presence platform.
