At the CRISP Design Review Session 5 the Grey but Mobile project presented IRIS.
IRIS is a product service system that is developed within the Grey but Mobile project and is collaboration between Eindhoven University of Technology, Connexxion, Hermes and the City of Eindhoven.

IRIS aims to make public transportation more accessible for elderly. It is a community of people who voluntarily help elderly to travel by bus, without having to defer from their own trip. The people from this community will volunteer to help elderly entering, travelling and leaving the bus while they are travelling themselves. IRIS is a web based platform through which volunteer and elderly are coupled.

This product-service system was demonstrated by means of a role play.
In which an elderly was played by Heather Daam who wore an empathic Ageing suit designed by herself and Maartje van Gestel from Design Academy Eindhoven.

The volunteer was played by Sietse Dols master graduation student from Eindhoven University of Technology who developed IRIS as his graduation project.

The bus was driven by Yuan Lu project manager of the Grey but Mobile project and Associate professor at Eindhoven University of Technology.

The narrator of the act out was Laura van Geel research assistant at Eindhoven University of Technology.
