The members of the project consortium (MTM, Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin, vitesco technologies), the associated partner (BGHM) and the project sponsor (Projektträger Karlsruhe) accepted the invitation. The project results were presented by the consortium members. The aim of developing the assistance system was to use smart devices for context-sensitive work support as a new component of occupational health management. The use of this system consists in particular in the flexible supply of health-promoting and execution-critical information, whereby the coworker should have access to the provided information at any time. To ensure sufficient usability, the assistance system was converted into an app that can be used in combination with various smart devices (smartwatches worn on the wrists and a hip-mounted smartphone). Using the smart devices, the app captures relevant movement data (body and arm movements) of the employee. These are converted into individual health-promoting information for the employee on the basis of developed evaluation algorithms.

A highlight of the closing event was the live demonstration of the developed assistance system in the IPS training centre. Guests at the closing event were able to experience the assistance system in action during the assembly process and get familiar with the operation of the developed app.

The IPS would like to thank all members of the project consortium, the associated partner and the project sponsor (Projektträger Karlsruhe) for their participation and for their constructive cooperation in the past four years.
