VTT's co-creative prototyping process transforms ideas into functional prototypes. A case study of the method is presented where IoT is applied to enhance the independent living for seniors. Based on user and stakeholder feedback, smart rollator was chosen for prototype implementation along with service concept design.
New user-driven method for service development combines the co-creation of products and services and rapid prototyping so that selected ideas can be shaped into functional prototypes. The model offers a stepping stone for companies that want to speed up the development of user-driven products and services.
The model takes into account the users, technological opportunities and business point-of-views. Users and stakeholders participate in the iterative development process in chosen stages during the innovation process.
