SRS presents at Innorobo on 19-21 March 2013

Innoboro 2013

The SRS project is presenting one of the scenarios developed in the project at Innorobo 2013 in Lyon (www.innorobo.com). Innorobo is a great opportunity for robotics companies and affiliated industry to get together and make new contacts. The scenario shows a tele-operated Care-O-bot that can accomplish navigation and manipulation tasks with the help of a human operator. Related key technologies developed in SRS are 3-D environment perception and visualization, user interface design and implementation as well as intuitive interaction patterns.

SRS at Aging Societies in Europe and Japan

The SRS project participated at the Aging Societies in Europe and Japan conference in Tokyo on 9-10th October. Organised by the European Commission, the Delegation of the European Union to Japan, and the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation, it looked at ways to help and provide for the ageing societies in Europe and Japan.

This event brought together experts and policy makers from the EU and Japan to share ideas and develop new strategies on how to improve care for the world’s increasing number of elderly people. The first day centred on the numerous social and economic challenges; the second day considered different responses provided by research and innovation, with leading EU and Japanese engineers and scientists presenting the latest in state-of-the-art senior citizen care solutions.

Latest Project Update

Update - Winter 2012:
First real home tests

The first real home test

The project carried out the first test in a real home environment. The main objectives of this test were to identify technical problems when operating the robot in a real home environment and to get feedback from potential elderly users on their perception of the robot in their home.

SRS at the European Robotics Forum 2012, 5-7 March 2012, Odense, Denmark

The SRS project had a presentation entitled "A remote human‐robot interaction
concept for physically assisting elderly people in the home" in the Robots in healthcare and welfare workshop at the European Robotics Forum 2012. An extended abstract can be found here.

SRS at the European Robotics Forum 2011, 8 April 2011, Sweden

The project presented at the Assistance robots for the elderly workshop held at the European Robotics Forum 2011 on 8 April 2011 in Västerås, Sweden. More details about the workshop can be found here.
