Alzheimer's patients need a widespread attention by assistants due to the disorders of memory and orientation they present. However, the knowledge of each daily patient is sometimes deficient. Assistants have no time to supervise patients' records because they doesn't have to distract the attention of care. In this work we present a proposal to solve this problem.

A complement to support the information manages routine by adapting the Near Field Communication Technology is offered. By means of touching tags with mobile phones, day centre assistants make it possible via tags placed through context, it means, patients, places, devices and applications. With this simple interaction, some aspects of the routine in this kind of context: basic status patient information, orientation, doors' security, therapy and other activities can be solved.

In addition, this proposal conclude with an information filtering process with the purpose of reaching an easy interaction method with mobile phones and providing recommendation to assistants and family. Finally, this process offers the adequately information to physicians.

Care-dependent people need assistance to carry out the normal daily activities. A situation that many of these people have to face up is going to the doctor in order to obtain the needed drugs' prescriptions. This work presents a proposal to enable patients getting prescriptions from home, avoiding going to the health-care center. With the aim of achieving a natural user interaction, something necessary because of the physical and mental limitations of care-dependent people, we have adapted Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. Using a NFC-enabled mobile phone, the user interacts with different tags to obtain the required services in an easy way.

The following scenarios have been developed:

  • Shopping list. Care-dependent people can order their daily shopping by using NFC mobile phone and RFID Tags distributed in a tag panel.
  • Delivery food. Care-dependent people can order meals in the same way as before.
  • Family calls. By using the same philosophy, a person could make a call by using the NFC phone and a photo of the relative which integrates a tag.
  • Mobile prescription. Many of care-dependent people have to face up is going to the doctor in order to obtain the needed drugs' prescriptions. This work presents a proposal to enable patients getting prescriptions from home, avoiding going to the health-care center. With the aim of achieving a natural user interaction, something necessary because of the physical and mental limitations of care-dependent people, we have adapted Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

In commercial environments there is a lot of information and services to be managed properly. In this case, users must interact with different environment objects in a explicit way. The main goal of this project is create an scenario for getting information and services in a natural and implicit way, through the mobile phone and NFC technology. We have identificate three scenarios:

Parking. In this situation, the system deploy several services such as: vehicle location, payment and voice instructions to park in free parking places.

Movie Theaters. Through Points of Information and dinamic movie listings, an user interacts with a specific object (with the NFC tag attached), for example a movie poster, and receive the trailer of the movie, information like synopsis and opinions, and even he can book tickets for a given session. Also, user can buy popcorns without queuing, only interacting with objects.

Shopping. Besides, the system provides several mechanisms to interact with products at the supermarket in the mall. With this, the user knows special offers and alerts related to his shopping list. And getting information about products and prices.
