The CompanionAble project is studying integrated cognitive assistive and domotic companion robotic systems for ability and security.
This session is organised by the CompanionAble consortium which includes experts such as gerontologists, behavioural psychologists, ethical and social policy experts, care-giving professionals, ICT researchers and companion-robotics manufacturers. In total, 17 related projects will be represented by a panel of 20 specialists from 16 organisations. Together with some 16 invited international experts, they cover the entire spectrum of expertise related to the fields of e-Inclusion and ambient assisted living. They will focus on e-Inclusion companion-robotics under the user-led theme of co-design, integration and exploitation of socially acceptable companion robots. The resulting White Paper and, possibly, a video will be put online.
