SRS Home Tests

The SRS project has carried out its first set of user tests in a real-world home environment at the home of an elderly couple living near Stuttgart, Germany (pictured on the right). Nicely mimicking the expected usage pattern of the SRS system, where children living a long distance from their parents use SRS to interact with and help their parents.

In addition to obtaining important feedback from potential elderly SRS end-users the test was also an opportunity to identify any technical problems that happen when the Care-o-Bot robot operates within a real home environment.
