NHoA is a project that aims to co-design of a socially intelligent assistive robot for the home that is robust, adaptable, and fosters user acceptance. PAL Robotics’ TIAGo will take part in the project as the robot, that will address these challenges.

Populations are aging fast in many regions such as Europe countries and Japan. Consequently, there is an increase in the number of people living alone. This will lead to an increased demand for care for older adults, posing severe impediments to deliver high-quality health and social care. Socially Assistive Robot (SAR) technology could assume new roles in health and social care to meet this higher demand. This SAR system shall also aid in everyday life (monitor the environment, safety, assistance, entertaining), help to remotely monitor the person’s health status and encourage them to do cognitive and physical training. This aid shall impact on improved well-being and comfort.
