ROBO M.D. Home care robot for monitoring and detection of critical situations

Resume ROBO M.D. is the result of an international cooperation project Innovation for Welfare, which was supported from the first call of INTERREG IVC Programme .

CZECH REPUBLIC Southwest

A home-care robot for monitoring and detection of critical situations was developed to improve quality of life of risk patients like elderly people, and also to reduce costs of homecare systems. In a critical situation (for instance fall of user) the robot will find a way to the user and will start a simple conversation. By a few questions the robot will find out if an emergency case happened or if a false alarm was trigged off throughout the data analysis. To communicate with the user or to find the way to the patient, the robot is equipped with different type of sensors and actuators. For instance video camera, speakers and microphone. During daily life the sensors could be turned off, which gives the user the feeling not to be observed, so it can increase the user’s acceptance of the robot.
