Robot-Era project: robotic services for ageing well

Article
The overall aim of the Robot-Era project (Implementation and integration of advanced Robotic systems and intelligent Environments in real scenarios for the ageing population) is to develop an advanced, three-tier robotic system that can improve quality of life and care for elderly people and facilitate independent living.

The robotic services developped by the project will actively work in real conditions and cooperate with real people and between them, to favour independent living, improve the quality of life and the efficiency of care for elderly people. The Domestic, Condominium and Outdoor robotic platforms have been developed and the Robot-Era services have been defined. The first experimental loop in Peccioli (Italy) and Ă„ngen (Sweden) has started in September 2013. Over 6 months 70 senior citizens will use and test the Robot-Era system in realistic indoor and outdoor environments.
