ALMA - Ageing without Losing Mobility and Autonomy


The entire ALMA project had as its goal the development, in close cooperation with end users, of a computer system to support impaired elderly people and other needy persons in their mobility. Within the framework of the ALMA project, promotion of the abilities of the target populations in terms of orientation, navigation, and mobility was sought via a bundling of software and hardware technologies into an integrated system.

In the context of the ALMA-Project the Forschungsstelle RobotRecht dealt with legal and ethical questions. Especially questions of criminal and civil liability with the special requirements of data privacy and the intellectual property were included. Furthermore questions of insurance law, guarantee of scientific freedom, as well as legal comparing questions and european standards played a role.
