Adaptable Ambient Living Assistant
The objective of the “ALIAS“ project is to develop a voice-controlled, mobile robot system that supports older persons in their daily lives. The robot is not intended to replace human interaction, but to help the user, through modern telecommunications technology, to maintain and expand existing personal contacts. It is a central concern of the project to promote the social integration of older persons and thus avoid the danger of isolation. To help preserve life quality, the user’s cognitive activities are also to be stimulated.
