LifeBots project


The goal of the LifeBots project is the study and development of longlife mechanisms that facilitate and improve the integration of robotics platforms in smart homes to support elder and handicapped people. Achieving this goal requires the use and integration of different technologies and research areas, such as robotics, smart sensors, automated planning, artificial vision, auditory scene analysis, speech recognition, dialog modelling and machine learning, but also online cognitive and physical therapeutic testing and evaluation. Thus, the project must be conducted by a multidisciplinary Consortium composed of different research groups, which will provide the required expertise on each of the technologies. Furthermore, the use cases to solve and the pilot experiments will be supported by medical experts. As defined below, each member of the Consortium is specialized in at least one area required for the achievement of the goals of the project. Next, a general view of the Consortium is provided, both as individual partners and as a global entity with large experience on coordinated projects.

This basic research project is organized in the following work-packages:
