ACCOMPANY- Acceptable robotiCs COMPanions for AgeiNg Years


ACCOMPANY is a 3 year project, which started in October 2011, partially funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme. The ACCOMPANY project aims to develop a companion robot which will assist elderly people to maintain their independence for longer within their home environment. The project team will assess user requirements and acceptance of the robot in their design of a physical, cognitive and social assistant for everyday home tasks. It is hoped the robot will contribute to the re-ablement of the user, delivering services through socially interactive, acceptable and empathic interaction. The project aims to establish a co-learner relationship, where both the robot and user can provide mutual assistance.
