The first prototype of the project KSERA

A group of qualified researchers coordinated by TU/e (The Netherlands) of which ISMB is a part of, has decided to link together intelligent houses and robots. In near future this un-precedent innovation permits elderly and people affected by chronic diseases to live at their own houses as long as possible. New functionalities and innovative human-machine interface are key enablers of the new scenario in which robot becomes one family friend capable to improve the domestic comfort and to help fellows to follow correctly the suggested care operations.

Knowledgeable Service Robotics for Aging project, a.k.a KSERA, targets primarily COPD patients

The first prototype was integrated and evaluated in Italy (early user tests), in Austria and Israel (formative evaluation).

ISMB hosts at own laboratories the fully functioning prototype for pre-commercial showcasing.
