Description

Presentations now available under Public Documents


 

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the workshop “Service Robotics & Smart Homes: How a gracefully adaptive integration of both environments can be envisaged?” This workshop is an initiative of the CompanionAble Integrated Research Programme, a project which is co‐funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme (Grant Agreement nº 216487).

The CompanionAble Partners are engaged in the research, design implementation and evaluation of a framework architecture to exploit the synergy of Robotics and Ambient Intelligence technologies and their semantic integration to support a care‐giver's assistive environment. This framework also includes support for the cognitive stimulation and therapy management of the care‐recipient and will be mediated by a robotic companion (mobile facilitation) working collaboratively with a smart home environment (stationary facilitation).

The CompanionAble team will organise this workshop in conjunction with the International Congress on Accessible and Assistive Technologies for dependent people, ABLETECH`08, to be held on the 10th and 11th of December in Bilbao, Spain.

This workshop is aimed at sharing experience with other European projects involved in Cognitive Robotics and Ambient Intelligence Technologies and developing a closer collaboration between the various Consortia Partners involved in Research and Innovation on such technologies. To this end, the workshop invites the participation of all European organisations who are Partners in projects funded by the European Commission, in the contexts of Ambient Assisted Living and Cognitive Robotics (FP6 or FP7), with the aim of exchanging insights to the benefit of all stakeholders (under normal restrictions for publication as applicable in each project).

The CompanionAble Consortium wishes this workshop to consider the innovation agenda and progress stage of the respective projects and attempt to identify specific technological and use‐case experiences that could be shared.
