KSERA project logo KSERA – Knowledgeable Service Robots for Aging

KSERA is a research project in the EU's 7th Framework Programme. The main aim is to develop a socially assistive robot that helps older people, especially those with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), with their daily activities, care needs and self-management of their disease .


The overall objective is to obtain a successful, effective interaction between the human and the socially assistive robot to guarantee acceptance and adoption of service robots and assistive home technology.


Multidisciplinary teams develop real user scenarios involving users and experts from care area right from the beginning. Participative design drives the research. In an iterative design, two prototypes will be developed and validated in a real end-user environment based on measures of safety, user acceptance, care efficiency and Quality of Life.
