Emergency help scenario

emergency Emergency situations are always a concern to the elderly living alone and their families. Current ways to deal with this include emergency buttons that inform a professional tele-care centre who call the emergency services.

The SRS system will develop new technologies to enable the Care-o-bot to be used by the care professional (and family members) to monitor the elderly person remotely during an emergency using a video call. In addition to this the care worker, using the robot, will be able to assist paramedics in gaining access to the elderly persons home by opening the door.

Situation monitoring scenario

The scenario allows authorised caregivers or family members to 'virtually' enter an elderly persons home using the Care-o-bot, checking around the house and carrying out a 'natural visit' as if they were actually present in the house.

This particular scenario mainly focuses on :
  • Social inclusion and connecting people
  • The innovative managing of monitoring the domestic environment
  • Respecting privacy as much as possible/ attention to the needs of privacy

Testing environments

testing environment

As part of the evaluation and validation of the SRS system a testing environment is needed. However, there is no such thing as a typical "elderly persons home" instead we have rough categories like “old houses” or “new houses”, “city flats” or “country houses”, “one floor apartments”, or “multi level villas” or again “rented tenements”.

So the SRS project will use environments that are representative of an elderly persons apartment at the Ingema IZA Care Center in San Sebastián and Santa Maria Nascente of Don Carlo Gnocchi Foundation in Milan.
