i–Walk


Intelligent Robotic Walker for mobility and cognitive assistance of elderly and motor-impaired people


 

The i-Walk project aims at developing and testing a new pioneering robotic system that will provide a range of mobility and cognitive support functions for people that face different degrees of mobility and cognitive problems. In this project, the following methodologies will be developed and synergistically utilized:

A: Multimodal Robot Perception

processing of multi-sensory and physiological signals and identification of actions for the monitoring, analysis and prediction of human gait and other actions of the user

B: User-Adaptive Robot Autonomy

behavioral and user-adaptive robot control and autonomous robot navigation for the dynamic approach of the user and the interactive co-occurrence combined also with voice guidance; 

C: Natural Human-Robot Interaction

human-robot communication, including speech synthesis and recognition technologies and a virtual assistant (avatar) to enhance the naturalness of communication
