In the bachelor thesis, scenarios of service robots for older people were developed. In addition to the target group, the generation 65+, various subareas of robotics were examined for this purpose, such as the human-robot interaction, the safety regulations for personal care robots, acceptance criteria regarding older people versus service robots and existing robotics techniques.
Based on this, scenarios such as health monitoring and cognitive and physical stimulation could be developed. In addition, insights were gained such as the definition of basic requirements for a service robot. These include e.g. requirements for the ability to learn with the help of Artificial Intelligence. Furthermore, desirable skills such as the networking of service robotics and smart home were defined.
"Especially the timeliness and the potential in this area were a great incentive for me during the development."
