Transcript

  • 1. CompanionAble Integrated Cognitive Assistive & Domotic Companion Robotic Systems for Ability & Security
  • 2.
    • CompanionAble will provide the synergy of Robotics and Ambient Intelligence technologies and their semantic integration to provide for a care – giver's assistive environment. This will support the cognitive stimulation and therapy management of the care-recipient. This is mediated by a robotic companion (mobile facilitation) working collaboratively with a smart home environment (stationary facilitation).
    • Strategic Objective : ICT-2007.7.1 ICT and Ageing
    • EU Funding : € 7.800.000,00
    • Project Start Date : 1.1. 2008, 48 months
    • Partner Countries : France, Germany, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, UK (18 partners)
    • Project Coordinator : Prof. Atta Badii (University of Reading, UK)
    Executive Summary
  • 3. 18 Project Partners (7 countries)
  • 4.
    • Synergetic combination of the mobile robotic companion with the advantages of a stationary smart home environment.
    • Integration of personal therapy management (possibly involving home information spaces such as the home TV screen, healthcare staff, medical professionals, gerontologists).
    • Semantic-Cooperative integration between the home environment (including smart house sensor network plus the robot) and the care system (District nurse/social services/healthcare system) ostensibly mediated by the CompanionAble and including alerts as required.
    • System able to help with improvement of contacts between the person and his/her carers and the wider social setting.
    • Social inclusion and homecare of persons suffering from chronic cognitive disabilities.
    Objectives
  • 5. Smart Home + Robot Smart Home & Robot
  • 6. CompanionAble
  • 7. You can leave your keys and glasses in my back tray. I will keep it for you! Good night! I will monitor the general state of the house and electric appliances How about doing a little of brain training ? I am afraid you forgot to switch off the oven! Hey! Are you thinking about a special cooking? Remember that your daughter Anna is coming to lunch tomorrow!! Emotions and verbal messages
  • 8.
    • Realisation of an intelligent day-time-management: drug intake, appointments, etc.
    • Content generation for cognitive stimulation and training and coherent delivery through multiple channels (stationary and mobile).
    • Videoconference between user and professionals/ relatives/ friends, fully integrated in the robot and smart home user interfaces.
    • On-line recognition of significant distress signals/utterances/calls (completed for French, the Dutch version is under development) and sound source localisation.
    • Visual detection of person’s location and position and analysis of emotions.
    • Multimodal and natural dialogue module (speech input-output, touch display, gestures).
    • The CompanionAble Project successfully demonstrated its first prototype , Hector, at its Smart Home Testbed in Eindohven in March 2010.
    Goals achieved, present results
