The CAPP – Collective Awareness Participatory Platform – project arises from the idea of using everyday technology, particularly mobile devices, to create services that benefit individual users, but can also (and above all) be used for the community.
CAPP promotes the development of a middleware platform for Android mobile devices that can collect and analyze multi-dimensional information and provide a single interface for the development of Mobile Social Network applications in various contexts.
These range from environmental monitoring to the control of health conditions and the social integration of subjects at risk (e.g. the elderly, citizens with disabilities).
The application and middleware platform thus represents a basis for the development of innovative services in the creation of a "Smart City" in which an active contribution by users is required to generate "Smart Citizenship".
