Age related memory decline, mild cognitive impairments (MCI), and cognitive impairments that occur with diseases, such as stroke, brain injuries, or early stages of dementia, have negative effects on the ability to navigate and to orient. Affected people who repeatedly start experiencing disorientation events often become scared of venturing out alone. The aim of the project NavMem is the development of a mobile companion for people with memory decline in order to support their navigation and orientation and at the same time promote a feeling of safety
