XoSoft’s work plan is divided into nine distinct Work Packages (WP):
WP1: User requirements and design specifications
Define user requirements and design specifications for the system, and provide the basis for the main research and technological activities of the project.
WP2: User centred design
Coordinate the system development efforts by means of an iterative user centred design approach, and run in parallel with WP3, WP4, WP5 and WP6, where the technology necessary to accomplish XoSoft will be developed.
WP3: Smart and soft sensing, and actuation
Focus on new technologies for sensors and actuators based on smart materials and advanced textiles.
WP4: Interaction and control
Develop the control of the system, including identification of user motion and intention.
WP5: Integration and testing
Centered on the integration and testing of the system in a laboratory environment.
WP6: Monitoring and feedback
Provide the monitoring and feedback system.
WP7: Validation and user needs
Evaluate the mature prototype in clinical and home trials.
