Multiple-Actors Virtual Empathic Caregiver for the Elder (MOVECARE)

Project Overview

MOVECARE aims at supporting the independent living of the elders at home; monitoring their daily activities while promoting their cognitive, physical, and social activities. It comprises 3 hierarchical layers: (1) A service layer provides monitoring and intervention. It endows objects of everyday use with advanced processing capabilities and integrates them in a distributed pervasive monitoring system to derive degradation indexes linked to decline, (2) A context-aware Virtual Caregiver, embodied into a service robot, is the core layer. It uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to propose to the elder a personalized mix of physical/cognitive/social activities as exergames. It evaluates the elder status, detects risky conditions, sends alerts and assists in critical tasks, in therapy and diet adherence, (3) The users’ community strongly promotes socialization acting as a bridge towards the elders’ ecosystem: other elders, clinicians, caregivers and family.
