The objective of the project is to help elderly or disabled people to maintain a healthy mental and physical life using intelligent robotics systems. This includes keeping and improving social relationships, have healthy meals and execute daily routines of physical and mental exercises. To achieve this, we propose an intelligent robotic system capable of helping people to communicate, monitor the person and motivate them mentally and physically. A human remote operator can help in case of unhandled events or risk situations in real time.

The robotic system’s main target is the use of it at home by people living alone, but the project will additionally validate its use in care centres. RAADICAL will enhance the capacity of caretakers to help and support more people. Project challenges include all required robot cognitive capabilities to understand user behaviour and be able to communicate naturally and working in an unstructured home environment.
