Project details

Start date: 02/2010
End date: 01/2013

Description: The project will research and develop a Knowledgeable Service Robot for Aging (KSERA) that will serve several related purposes for elderly persons in general and those with pulmonary disease in particular. Specifically KSERA will provide (1) a mobile assistant to follow and monitor the health and behavior of a senior, (2) useful communication (video, internet) services including needed alerts to caregivers and emergency personnel, and (3) a robot integrated with smart household technology to monitor the environment and advise the senior or caregivers of anomalous or dangerous situations. KSERA aims at an adaptive technical aid that will provide needed and useful services in a pleasant, easy-to-use format via a robot that also acts as a companion and assistant.
