About this project
In progress 2011 - 2015
The objective of Robot-Era is to develop complete advanced robotic services integrated in intelligent environments, which will actively work in real conditions and cooperate with real people to provide favourable independent living, improving the quality of life and the efficiency of care for elderly people. Robot-Era will demonstrate the general feasibility and effectiveness of these systems, as well as their social plausibility and acceptability by end-users.
The role of the AASS Cognitive Robotics Systems Lab will be to develop an advanced, modular and customizable ambient intelligence infrastructure within which the above services can be provided. Our Lab will also supervise the development of one of the two project´s testing site: a smart apartment inside a large residential facility intended for senior citizens.
Robot-Era is a EU FP7 Integrated Project. The overall budget is about 8,500,000 EUR. The share of Orebro University is about 950,000 EUR.
