Taking up the difficulty of the demographic change, Florence understands the robot as a platform which links various services from the area of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) (e.g. health monitoring, guidance in everyday life, social integration). These services are then made available via one single interface: the robot.
Goal of the project is to develop a mobile system which allows certain telemedical services at home, even if it is not equipped with home automation.
With this, different clinical assessments can be made regarding the examination of mobility or risk of falling in the domestic environment. Problems can be detected immediately and critical situations can be avoided.
Within the project, OFFIS is involved in programming the robot platform as well as in the realization of security functions (detection of changes of the health status, detecting critical situations at home etc.). Important goals are merging available mobile and stationary sensor modalities, the development of a contextual interaction concept and securing the patient´s privacy regarding sensitive data.
The project `Florence` has the objective to support elderly people, their family members and caregivers to lead a self- determined life in their familiar environment with the help of mobile service robots.
