Abstract

Life expectancy increases and the wish to prolong independent living remains strong. To stay as independent as possible gives satisfaction to the individual and reduces costs for society. With advances in information and communication technologies, service robotics becomes important means for assisting older persons in their daily living. In this paper we introduce MOBISERV, a project aiming to develop proactive personal service robotics that will be integrated with innovative wireless (bio-) sensors, localisation and communication technologies, smart textiles and clothing and a wearable solution hosting monitoring equipment for supporting independent living for elderly. Health and wellness, nutrition and mobility but also social interaction, safety, security and privacy are examples of assistance that MOBISERV will provide to older people.
