SMOOTH: Seamless huMan-robot interactiOn fOr THe support of elderly people

SMOOTH is funded by Innovation Fund Denmark and runs from 2017-2020. SMOOTH aims at creating robots for the support of elderly people. These robots have to interact seamlessly and robustly with their users. Thus, we will develop generic multi‐modal, highly adaptable proactive robot control and a modular mobile robot platform. We hypothesize that this advanced robot control will generate natural, timely and comprehensible human‐robot interactions for 3 use cases realized on the very same robot platform; thereby leading to commercially viable solutions.
