ESR12. Robot Gaming Strategies to Enhance Older Adults’ Wellbeing and Quality of Life

Project Title: Robot Gaming Strategies to Enhance Older Adults’ Wellbeing and Quality of Life.

Description:  The use of an active agent, such as a Service Robot (SR), in smart-home based assisted living applications opens to a whole new world of possibilities. The primary function a SR should be able to accomplish in order to provide assistance to people is to sense and understand the surrounding environment. The task of recognizing object in real-time in the domestic setting, with its plethora of categories and their inter-class variance, it is highly challenging and still remains an unsolved problem. The goal of this project is to design and implement an effective algorithm to be able to provide abstract knowledge about the objects populating the home environment. Finally, gaming strategies will be used to include the assisted person in the algorithm's workflow, not only as end-user, but also also a source of knowledge.
