Project overview

Project ALMI (Ambient Assisted Living for Long-term Monitoring and Interaction Integration) is addressing the challenges posed by an aging population and the resulting social care crisis. This project aims to develop adaptive methods for assistive-care robots, enabling them to handle the unpredictability of home environments. The goal is to create sustainable social care solutions by leveraging robotic technology.

Our Role

PAL Robotics is instrumental in Project ALMI by enhancing our TIAGo platform into a comprehensive social robotic solution designed to assist older adults with mild motor and cognitive impairments.

Key responsibilities

  • Development of TIAGo: We adapted the TIAGo robot to assist users with daily activities, focusing on meal preparation.
  • Enhancement of Manipulation Capabilities: Equipped TIAGo with advanced manipulation capabilities and provided assurance for the customized robotic arm.
  • Speech Interaction and Object Manipulation: Utilized TIAGo’s speech interaction for voice instructions and its object manipulation abilities to effectively aid users.
  • Environment Monitoring: Integrated monitoring capabilities to build and maintain a knowledge base of household objects, ensuring seamless interaction and assistance.
