Enhanced Care Service through Improved Mobility for Elderly People (Grey But Mobile) is about improving care-related mobility services for the elderly supporting independent living and social connectivity. Importantly, the quantitative and qualitative effects of these proposed services have to contribute to the improved health of the elderly as well as to the economic efficiency of care.

Introducing the New Skewiel Mobiel

One of our longest running testbeds, Skewiel Mobiel, started a few years before the CRISP research community was formed. It became a satisfying service for elderly who are otherwise unable to leave their homes. Many customers are attached to the service and they have adopted it in such a way that it started to play an indelible role in their daily lives. Weaknesses have also been found, such as the low and sometimes dangerous top speed of 40 kph, the limited range of destinations, and the Spartan comfort of the customized electric golf cart, the GEM e4. After 4 years of running and running research, it was time to replace it for an new and improved electric vehicle.

During the Dutch Design Week the CRISP project 'Grey but Mobile' will present a pilot called Aevus, in which elderly people can experience a new type of taxi service. Four electric cars will drive them around the centre of Eindhoven, with a taxi driver who will give a hand where needed, without any time pressure.
