Use Cases Functionality of the OASIS HCI [chapter]

Maria Panou, Evangelos Bekiaris, Maria Fernanda Cabrera-Umpierrez, Viveca Jiménez Mixco, Maria Teresa Arredondo
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Within OASIS, a set of detailed Use Cases have been developed, after capturing the specific needs of elderly users on the use and acquisition of services for the support of their every day life. These use cases offer direct input to the design and development of the user interaction elements in terms of key characteristics, such as self-adaptivity and personalisation parameters that abide to the devices capabilities and environmental restrictions and satisfy the user personal needs and wants.

Needs and expectations of older passengers in using autonomous public transport

Maria Panou, Miranda Maglavera
2019 Zenodo  
AVENUE is a H2020 EC project, aiming to design and carry out full scale demonstrations of urban transport automation by deploying fleets of autonomous mini-buses in low to medium demand areas of 4 European demonstrator cities. The target group of AVENUE is passengers, including people with reduced mobility, disabilities, elderly and in general potentially vulnerable users. User experience and accessibility are of key importance when designing and developing innovative and disruptive urban

In this paper, the users' feedback gathered in the Greek survey with 15 older travelers (> 60 years old) is presented. Overall, the survey showed that about half of the respondents are willing to use driverless /autonomous public busses, but with several pre-requisites. The safety level, reliability and trust issues are crucial factors for the elder passengers and the autonomous busses acceptance level.

Personalized application for multimodal route guidance for travellers

Maria Panou
2011 European Transport Research Review  
Purpose Studies about the use of internet-based services and especially those that are related to services on-the-move, reveal that their propagation is rapidly expanding, with high increase probability in the next years. It is about services that are offered through mobile devices (PDAs, mobile phones) where the travelers wish to receive geographically updated information. The present paper aims at the optimization of public transport (PT) information services that are provided on mobile

Methods A specific innovative algorithm is proposed along with the necessary parameters (dynamic and semi-dynamic) that support a holistic personalization. The algorithm is based on each user specific profile, based on the history of his/her previous selections. The proposed algorithm constitutes a ready service, that can be adopted by the appropriate stakeholders in cooperation with content providers such as public transport route providers and dynamic digital maps. Results The developed algorithm was tested by 10 users. In general, it was positively evaluated by the majority of the users, with a varying acceptance and confidence levels. Users evaluated also the personalization parameters, giving to the maximum walking distance between PT means the highest score. Conclusions The innovation and limitations of the current algorithm are discussed, followed by proposals for extensions and further research.

A multi-faceted evaluation framework to evaluate service providers' and travellers' experience with MaaS enabling technologies

Katerina Touliou, Maria Gemou, Cornelia Zankl, Maria Panou, Evangelos Bekiaris
2019 Zenodo  
The concept of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) has been recently introduced to transportation and has the potential to really affect and change the transportation market as well as the interactions between users, service providers and suppliers across many countries. The aim was to firstly evaluate the usefulness, ease of use, usability and user experience of travellers and service providers in using the MaaS enabling mobile application and Service Registration Tool, respectively and secondly to

MOBILE PHONE APPLICATION TO SUPPORT THE ELDERLY

Maria Panou
2013 International Journal of Cyber Society and Education  
There is a significant increase of the elderly population worldwide, which is accompanied with a rise of the number of people living alone. Moreover, many citizens are at risk due to geographic and social isolation in combination with specific chronic conditions. ICT offers new opportunities in the healthcare area, therefore, within the REMOTE research project, several services have been developed and interconnected International Journal of Cyber Society and Education 52 (targeted at patients

This paper presents the Guardian Angel service on the mobile phone, in order to monitor (unobtrusively) the health of the user on the move and alert the medical centre in case of an emergency. The prototype has been evaluated by 30 elderly users and 5 experts, indicating a possible deployment of the application in the healthcare market, but also proposing further improvements for increased usability.

Do we need to agree on what resilience is? A proposed practical and participatory approach

Ioannis Benekos, Evangelos Bekiaris, Maria Panou
2021 Zenodo  
Resilience is a term frequently used nowadays in different contexts, including transportation. However, definitions vary even within sectors. Communities play also a vital role in decision-making that relates to transportation and/or to its infrastructure. This paper presents different views on 'resilience', and 'community resilience' and a practical and participatory methodology on how to build 'community resilience' that may support the development of technologies and/or decisions in

Although the proposed approach was implemented in the context of the Horizon 2020 EU-funded project 'Search and Rescue' which concerns disaster management, several of the involved stakeholders constitute also stakeholders in the transportation sector. The pros and cons and thoughts for further improvement or adaptation of the proposed approach are also discussed

Transthoracic echocardiography for the diagnosis of left ventricular thrombosis in the postoperative care unit

Theodosios Saranteas, Anastasia Alevizou, Maria Tzoufi, Fotios Panou, Georgia Kostopanagiotou
2011 Critical Care  
Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is a reliable, noninvasive imaging method that is useful in the evaluation of cardiovascular thrombosis. We conducted a retrospective study of all the echocardiograms from patients in the postoperative care unit to assess the role of TTE in thrombus identification in the left ventricle. Methods: This retrospective database evaluation included all echocardiograms during a 14-month period. The echocardiographic examination protocol included the subcostal

All echocardiograms were obtained within the 48 hours immediately following surgery. Results: In total, 160 postoperative echocardiograms were obtained from 160 patients and resulted in the detection of five cases of left ventricular thrombosis. Subgroup analysis showed that 21 and 35 of the 160 patients examined had either dilated or ischemic cardiomyopathy, respectively. In these patients, preoperative echocardiograms had been obtained recently prior to surgery and were negative for left ventricular thrombus. In three of 35 patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy and two of 21 patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, thrombus was identified in the left ventricle. The thrombi were mobile, uncalcified and pedunculated and were located in the apex of the left ventricle. In addition, no clinical consequences of the left ventricular thrombi were recorded. Conclusions: Low-flow conditions in heart chambers due to ischemic or dilated cardiomyopathy in conjunction with the hypercoagulability caused by perioperative prothrombotic factors may lead to thrombotic events in the left ventricle.

A proline-rich [60]fullerene peptide was synthesized by use of (i) a 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of an N-substituted glycine derivative to [60]fullerene, (ii) esterification of the isolated alcohol with the C-terminal amino acid of the desired peptide sequence, and finally (iii) coupling of the remaining hexapeptide to give the final product 8 as a TFA salt, with oxidized methionine. Product 8 was found to be biologically active against sera from MCTD and SLE patients (ELISA experiment). q
