    Abstract

    The needs and preferences of the population should form thick background for the technological development of smart environment as well as to the development of the new practises that are possible due the new technologies and services. At VTT different methods (eg scenarios) are used to identify user needs for various contexts and potential problems related to the usability, utility and ethics of the service or a product. Besides scenario-based design we have also used i deation meetings and happenings for the innovation of new services and applications. This talk describes our experiences of co-design practises with elderly participants.
