A.L.B.A. - GAM

Project by MOSCHINO S.P.A.

A.L.B.A. (Advanced Light Body Assistant) supports the mobility of people with disability, increasing their independence thank to the most updated technologies coming from automotive and robotic industries. Alba is a low cost Wheelchair conversion KIT, able to transform almost any traditional wheelchair in ADAS and Electrical wheelchair.

The possible uses of A.L.B.A. are:

  • movement and monitoring of people in public/private facilities (hospitals, airports, museums...)
  • tracking and maintenance of wheelchairs in public/private facilities
  • definition of guided paths for rehabilitation and training

As part of Torino City Lab, the solution will be tested at the GAM - Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Torino - to give the disabled user an innovative experience of the contents of the exhibition.

Predetermined paths of the artworks will be defined, allowing the user to move autonomously through voice commands, given directly or with the help of an operator, or using the touch screen. Once in front of the artwork, A.L.B.A. will be able to play the associated audiovisual content.
