Voice for Urban Mobility

Human-Centred Voice-enabled Symptom Monitoring & Urban Mobility Services for Travelers and Vulnerable Residents in Helsinki & Tallinn

Voice for Urban Mobility will offer voice-enabled symptom monitoring and urban mobility services via mobile apps and public kiosks to vulnerable residents and travelers between Helsinki and Tallinn. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and urban crisis, there is a need for responsive, inclusive and accessible services to residents and travelers to assess their ecological health and well-being, adopt effective urban behavioral changes, and support safe mobility across cities to mitigate these effects.

This project will provide secure personalized voice-enabled services for travelers and families to monitor their collective symptoms in Urban Well-being Diaries, while assessing ecological measures of physical, mental and urban well-being in their daily lives. It would guide travelers and vulnerable residents (esp. patients, elderly, migrants, and the disabled) in seeking health and urban mobility services via mobile apps and Urban Voice Portals installed at critical public sites in Helsinki and Tallinn.

A proposal for the EIT Urban Mobility initiative’s COVID-19 Crisis Response Call.
