I was extended a kind invitation to give a short talk on new technologies relating to the quality of life for neurocognitive disease patients (e.g. Alzheimer's), during the 6th Panhellenic Psychiatric Convention for Primary Healthcare. My talk focused on a short introduction to the concept of Ubiquitous Computing and presented a range of case studies in the use of UbiComp systems in

I have uploaded the code for our SoNav prototype on Github, for any researchers interested in building 3D audio navigation apps for Android.
The prototype uses the concept of an "audio scent" - after a route has been calculated for the user, the route "emits" a continuous sound which the user can perceive using 3D audio delivered by their headphones. As the user walks further from the route, the level of the audio diminishes to let them know they have strayed too far.
As a technical consultant to the municipality of Patras (Greece), I have been involved in the planning and deployment of a public transport information system, including vehicle telematics, intelligent signage and public-facing mobile and web apps. My role in the project was to build the project specifications and monitor the project progress on behalf of the city.
