Research project

Robotics platform

Development and implementation of an information platform for existing robotic systems in the field of care and support for ageing people

Currently, robotic systems are being developed and tested in different areas of research and industry for the elderly and care sector. In order to obtain an up-to-date overview of existing offers and possibilities, a central, multilingual, independent and comprehensive digital information platform on existing robotic systems for support in old age will be developed so that existing possibilities can be efficiently used and further developed. This information platform should cover the existing needs for information and knowledge of both ageing and care organisations but also of the general public and also promote the exchange of the interested public and stakeholders through various functions.
