$6M Project to Standardize Robots in Senior Care Settings
Caro-Bot-3
Ethical and technical standardization sought governing machine and human interactions
By Emmet Cole


Using Care-O-bot 3—a commercially available robotic testing and development platform developed by ACCOMPANY consortium participant Fraunhofer IPA—the consortium will investigate how seniors interact with robots, the features they would like care robots to have, and their preferred kind of user interface.

The funding is part of a significant European Commission investment in social care robotics that goes beyond engineering to explore legal, ethical, and social issues surrounding human-robot interaction in social care environments.
