TRIALOG coordinates the European-Japanese project ACCRA, co-funded by the H2020 programme and the Japanese NICT.
Robotics is progressing thanks to the combination of embedded and cloud technologies. Within this framework, Trialog is leading a consortium of partners to develop robotics applications that help seniors in their daily lives. The project elaborates a development process in co-creation with users using an Agile method.
This process is applied to 3 types of applications (walking support, daily life support, conversation support and rehabilitation). The co-creation work is carried out at 4 sites in France (piloted by CCAS Antibes, http://www.antibes-juanlespins.com/ccas), in Italy (within the IRCCS hospital: https://www.operapadrepio.it/it/ricerca-scientifica.html), in the Netherlands (in a WVO Zorg rehabilitation centre (https://www.wvozorg.nl/) in Vlissingen) and Japan.
The ACCRA’s fundamental principle is to contribute to the emergence of a robotic platform using generic enablers (FIWARE and UniversAAL) with an emphasis on interoperability. Indeed, applications of the same nature will be offered on the two different robotic offers: Astro-Robot and Buddy (BlueFrogRobotics), although they are both based on different systems (ROS (http://www.ros.org/) for ASTRO and Android / Unity3D for Buddy). Despite these differences, it is imperative to share software components in order to build a richer and more sustainable offer.
The impact study will be carried out as part of a multi-dimensional evaluation: user perception, user use, ethics, economic, technical and organisational aspects.
