In a social and economic context characterized by a constantly aging population, the research for new technologies able to assist elderly people is getting more and more attention. In this extended abstract we illustrate the main components of the European project MoveCare, a multi-actor framework designed to assist pre-frail elders living alone. The proposed system is centered around an assistive mobile robot that provides the user with a set of functionalities to support cognitive and social…

Towards Long-Term Deployment of a Mobile Robot for at-Home Ambient Assisted Living of the Elderly

The main components of the European project MoveCare, a multi-actor framework designed to assist pre-frail elders living alone, are illustrated and a preliminary experimental evaluation of the platform under the perspective of long-term autonomy (LTA) is presented.

Evaluating the Acceptability of Assistive Robots for Early Detection of Mild Cognitive Impairment

This work presents a system where a specific set of cognitive tests is selected, digitalized, and integrated with a robotic assistant, whose task is the guidance and supervision of the users during the completion of such tests.

Community Based Activity Center to Support Independently Living Elders

A novel platform that integrates an activity center and a virtual community aimed to provide monitoring, stimulation and assistance at the point of need to independent living elders, especially those who are at risk of falling into frailty is described.

Socially acceptable approach to humans by a mobile robot

This paper proposes a solution to endow a mobile robot with the ability to approach humans in a safe and socially acceptable way on real world indoor environments where the usual presence of multiple humans and obstacles notably rise the complexity of the approach action.

Statistical Study of the Performance of Recursive Bayesian Filters with Abnormal Observations from Range Sensors

This work presents a statistical approach that allows for study and quantify the impact of abnormal observations from range sensors on the performance of Bayesian filters, and formulate the estimation problem from a generic perspective, analyse the main limitations of common robotics range sensors, and define the factors that potentially affect the filtering performance.



The use of socially assistive robots in the design of intelligent cognitive therapies for people with dementia

A new adaptive robotic system based on the socially assistive robotics (SAR) technology that tries to provide a customized help protocol through motivation, encouragements, and companionship to users suffering from cognitive changes related to aging and/or Alzheimer's disease is presented.

The EnrichMe Project - A Robotic Solution for Independence and Active Aging of Elderly People with MCI

The results of the activities conducted during the first year of the ENRICHME project are described, in particular the definition of user needs and requirements and the resulting system architecture.

GiraffPlus: a system for monitoring activities and physiological parameters and promoting social interaction for elderly.

This chapter presents a telehealth system called GiraffPlus supporting independent living of elderly in their own home. GiraffPlus system is a complex system which monitors activities and

ExCITE Project: A Review of Forty-Two Months of Robotic Telepresence Technology Evolution

This article reports on the EU project ExCITE with specific focus on the technical development of the telepresence platform Giraff over a period of 42 months, finding a system suitable for use in homes rather than a generic system suitable, for example, in office environments.

Mild cognitive impairment and its management in older people

Further studies are needed in the future to determine causes of MCI and risk factors of progression from MCI to dementia and to find better ways for prevention and treatment of cognitive impairment worldwide.

Frailty in older adults: evidence for a phenotype.

This study provides a potential standardized definition for frailty in community-dwelling older adults and offers concurrent and predictive validity for the definition, and finds that there is an intermediate stage identifying those at high risk of frailty.
