Mobiserv - An Integrated Intelligent Home Environment for the Provision of Health, Nutrition and Well-Being Services to Older Adults

The Mobiserv concept is based on the following technologies:
- Social companion robot – an intelligent and autonomous robot, containing processing power, data storage capability, various sensors, machine learning/experience gathering/adaptation, a touch screen, speech synthesis, and speech recognition.
- Wearable smart clothes – implementing various functionalities such as monitoring of vital parameters and falls.
- Smart home environment – including smart sensors, optical recognition units, and home automation actuators.

Objective of the project is to develop and use up-to-date technology in a coordinated, intelligent and easy-to-use way to support independent living of older persons as long as possible in their home or various degrees of institutionalization. The implementation will be based on the user acceptance of the technology and understanding of user interaction that truly addresses user needs.

MOBISERV - Public Presentation

  1. 1. Mobiserv Integrated Intelligent Home Environment for the Provision of Health, Nutrition and Well-Being Services to Older Adults “A new kind of coach in the journey towards independent living”
  2. 2. The Consortium 2
  3. 3. The Concept: Social Robot + Smart Home + Services Care centre Smart clothes Video CommunicationSmart Home 3
  4. 4. The Project ObjectivesSocial Objectives• OS1 Develop a Personal Robotic System to support daily living of seniors in everyday activities, with an emphasis on personal health care, independence, and quality of life.• OS2 Support seniors in maintaining their social activities.• OS3 Embrace a paradigm shift in health responders, redefining the way of treating and managing health-related emergency calls and the way first responders, carers, family, health care service providers are coordinated, giving support to integrated care. 4
  5. 5. The Project ObjectivesResearch Objectives• OR1 Research, develop and implement self-learning techniques for optical recognition, pattern recognition and autonomous navigation.• OR2 Research effective self-learning methods for predicting and detecting health-related events from multiple sensors, given the fact that single sensor based solutions are not robust and reliable.• OR3 Evaluate the Personal Intelligent Robotic System in terms of comfort, usability and safety.• OR4 Investigate the most effective and efficient communication modes between the robot and human user in various scenarios, and the impact of cultural, gender, age and cognitive differences on this.• OR5 Evaluate different types of robot embodiments in relation to user acceptability, and the relationship between criteria for acceptance and cultures, societal demographics. 5
  6. 6. The Project ObjectivesTechnological Objectives• OT1 Produce an efficient design of the Personal Robotic Platform.• OT2 Develop health status monitoring wearable fabrics.• OT3 Develop a tele-alarm and health reporting system.• OT4 Develop a nutrition support system.• OT5 Integrate these components into the Personal Robot.• OT6 Apply innovative techniques for monitoring nutrition habits and vital signs of seniors• OT7 Develop a unified interface to different wireless technologies, enabling seamless connectivity.• OT8 Develop methods for securing sensitive and private communicated information. 6

  8. 8. Selected Functions• Companionship: well-being services for social and cognitive stimulation, keeping people active, based context such as inactivity or emotions• Nutrition Coach: preventing dehydration and malnutrition• Health Coach: encourage physical activities and exercises, tele- medicine, and vital signs monitoring (with smart clothes)• Safety Coach: fall detection and responder & controlling your home• Video communication to friends, family, carers, and a call centre 8

The Project Milestones Delivery# Milestone WP Lead date Initial System Requirements1 WP2 UWE M5 Specification Technical Specifications, and2 WP3 LUT M8 Implementation Scenarios WP4, 5, 63 First MOBISERV system prototype ROBOSOFT M24 and 7 Evaluation Report of first MOBISERV4 WP2 UWE M32 system prototype WP4, 5, 65 Second MOBISERV system prototype ROBOSOFT M39 and 7 Final evaluated MOBISERV system6 WP2 UWE M45 prototype 11
  12. 12. Main Achievements in 2012• Preparing, planning and running extensive evaluations with end-users, carers and other stakeholders in UK and NL. – Analysis and reporting of evaluation study results.• Development of new integrated scenarios, and improving the system’s intelligence. – Development of new user model, context model, and rules set.• Design of the MOBISERV secondary user interface for formal/informal carers. 12
  13. 13. Main Achievements in 2012• Refined technical specifications of MOBISERV system.• Development of final context-aware and nutrition support prototype.• Redesign of the smart clothes, including the smart garments for night and day, and the data logger.• Many audiences reached by scientific and non-scientific dissemination activities. 13
  14. 14. Our Main FindingsMost valued by end-users and carers:• Companionship• Stimulating, motivating & supporting• Embodiment & natural interactionOpinions & reactions:• It elicits human reactions and relations• Provides security & peace of mind• Empowers people, and helps people to help each other• Will be part of the care eco-system, close to the informal carer 14
  15. 15. Some Quotes “It should be used for guarding, signaling,stimulating, exercising, keeping me awake, etc.” “The robot calling the emergency service – that is most important.” “It should say something nice every now and then, a little more playful, and with more variation. A nice expression, something original, something you do not hear every day.” 15
  16. 16. Demonstrations in 2012 16
  17. 17. The Planning for 2013• Finalization of the second MOBISERV system prototype.• Running extensive user evaluation sessions in the UK and in NL over longer periods of time, including primary and secondary users• Finalization of the various MOBISERV exploitation plans.• Organization of national / international public showcase events / workshops. 17
