Semantic Framework for Social Robot Self-Configuration
In the paper we present the conceptual idea of scalable robotic service cores for a simplified and rapid deployment of ambient assisted living environments. We situate our approach in between fully networked homes on the one hand and smart artifacts on the other end of the scale. We elaborate on the multi-dimensional interdisciplinary challenges that need to be addressed for successful future pervasive healthcare systems. We illustrate our approach at the instance of a functional scale model of an example for a robotic service core and situate it in the body of research in the dimensions healthcare, architecture, design, society, culture and pervasive computing.
