  • Description: Smart homes, when applied to elder people, can be considered as residential houses equipped with sensors and automated devices whose goal is to deliver care and monitoring of the people living in them. Such assistance must be defined in the long-term, and it must attempt to balance the immediate specific needs of the user with the long-term effects that the robot’s and assistance technologies can potentially have on the user’s developmental trajectory. The LifeBots project will investigate the use of lifelong technologies as a key resource to adapt to new goals, user’s preferences or environmental issues that require a tailoring of current assistive settings.

  • Financing: This project has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 601116
  • Description: The project is focus on robotized Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment. In particular, it focuses on the development of CLARC, a mobile robot able to receive the patient and his family, accompany them to the medical consulting room and, once there, help the physician to capture and manage their data during the Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) procedures.

  • Description: The main objective of the project is to analyze the problem of goal management for long-term autonomous systems, design appropriate algorithms for addressing the different components of goal management, and develop software tools that help on the application of this technology to Smart Cities tasks. The long-term goal of fully autonomous systems is a highly ambitious objective for many fields, including Artificial Intelligence or Robotics. Thus, we focus on one of the aspects that has been less explored in the literature, but with a big impact on the overall objective of long-term autonomy: automatic goal management.
