GiraffPlus: Combining social interaction and long term monitoring for promoting independent living
TLDR
A general overview of the GiraffPlus system is provided, which consists of a network of home sensors that can be automatically configured to collect data for a range of monitoring services; a semi-autonomous telepresence robot; a sophisticated context recognition system that can give high-level and long term interpretations of the collected data and respond to certain events.
Unifying planning and scheduling as timelines in a component-based perspective
The timeline-based approach to planning represents an effective alternative to classical planning for complex domains requiring the use of both temporal reasoning and scheduling features. This pape
Supporting Interaction in the ROBOCARE Intelligent Assistive Environment
TLDR
This paper accounts for the combination of features that create interactive capabilities for personalized and mixed-initiative interaction with the assisted person in the ROBOCARE project, and shows how its indications can be identified.
Psychological Implications of Domestic Assistive Technology for the Elderly
TLDR
An evaluation of elderly people's perception of assistive robots and smart domotic environments shows how the acceptability of robotic devices in home setting does not depend only on the practical benefits they can provide, but also on complex relationships between the cognitive, affective and emotional components of people's images of robot.
MONITORING ELDERLY PEOPLE WITH THE ROBOCARE DOMESTIC ENVIRONMENT: INTERACTION SYNTHESIS AND USER EVALUATION
TLDR
How constraint‐based scheduling technology is used to actively monitor a pattern of activities executed by the person and how detected temporal constraint violations are used to trigger meaningful and contextualized proactive interactions are described.
RoboCare: Pervasive Intelligence for the Domestic Care of the Elderly
TLDR
Two aspects of the system in the making are detailed, namely the centralized, service-oriented supervision infrastructure, called Active Supervision Framework (ASF), and the robotic components in use in the present stage of system development.
RoboCare: an Integrated Robotic System for the Domestic Care of the Elderly
TLDR
The state of advancement of the RoboCare project, which was launched in December last year, is reported, which addresses the creation of a multi-agent environment in which all these actors cooperate synergistically in order to provide user services.
Configuration Planning with Multiple Dynamic Goals
We propose an approach to configuration planning for robotic systems in which plans are represented as constraint networks and planning is defined as search in the space of such networks. The
The RoboCare project, cognitive systems for the care of the elderly
TLDR
The aim of the RoboCare Project is to study issues and challenges involved in the design of systems for the care of the elderly that adopt both fixed and mobile heterogeneous agents.
More knowledge on the table: Planning with space, time and resources for robots
TLDR
This work proposes a planner grounded on well-founded constraint-based calculi that adhere to the requirements of a useful model in a robotic context and is validated through several experiments on real and simulated robot platforms.
