SHARA3: Holistic Care System based on Affective and proactive Robots for Older Adults
This project aims, from an applied research perspective, to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of older adults at home through assistants based on proactive and affective robotic platforms, and the study of their intervention for autonomous decision making, and by specialists, according to the needs of the user and their environment. This way we follow a holistic approach, where the assistance to older adults can be seen as a whole, and not as a union of isolated assistive functionalities.
