Technologies for healthier independent lives for the ageing populations

KMi are part of a 43 partner EU project that has just be given the go ahead as part of the EU Horizon2020 research funding programme. The main objective of the Project is to create a GATEKEEPER that connects healthcare providers, businesses, entrepreneurs, elderly citizens and the communities they live in, in order to originate an open, trust-based arena for matching ideas, technologies, user needs and processes, aimed at ensuring healthier independent lives for the ageing populations. The KMi Team, led by Professor Enrico Motta, will investigate the role of robots in the developing landscape of healthcare support. Specifically, the team will test the feasibility and appropriateness of in-home robots and community robots that can provide citizens with healthcare support and information and well as a direct link to healthcare professionals. The team will build test scenarios in Milton Keynes that provide valuable insight into the role of robots. This project is part of the broader KMi research programme in Robots and Smart Cities, which is described at https://isds.kmi.open.ac.uk/smart-cities-and-robotics/.
