The Challenges



The major challenges to be addressed in the project include the adaptation of state of the art robotic mobile

platforms and their integration with a virtual collaborative social network to provide:


i) Detection of individual needs and requirements related to ageing (e.g. physical mobility limitations or/and cognitive decline), and provision of support through timely involvement of care teams, consisting of different groups of people (family members, neighbours, friends) that collaborate dynamically and virtually, means independently of time and their physical locations, behaviour analysis to adapt social relationships and contexts of the elderly people as they age;


ii) Navigate indoors and unstructured environments and provide affective and empathetic user-robotic interaction, taking into account the capabilities of and acceptance by elderly users.
