Personal Assistive Robots: A Roadmap to Deployment
Building on insights gained in over a decade of research and development, and leveraging the expertise of CMU's Robotics Institute and Human-Computer Interaction Institute, the Quality of Life Technology Center is creating the definitive guide to robots that serve people at home and work in long-term care and other health care settings.
The roadmap will be comprehensive and cover topics including:
- which task competencies are the highest priority
- compromises between automation and robot autonomy that will accelerate deployment
- human-robot interaction paradigms taht will succeed, especially for older adult users and health care workers
- regulatory, reimbursement and other non-technological barriers and how to address them.
Personal Assistive Robots: A Roadmap to Deployment will be available via the QoLT Consortium in Q3, 2014.
