A multifunctional service robot to support care professionals in the hospital

BMBF, 2020 – 2023

Recent years have highlighted several challenges in the care sector such as shortages of trained care professionals, precarious labor conditions or lack of investment. HoLLiECares aims to refine a prototype service robot for flexible use and adaptive support of care professionals in hospital settings:

  • Identification and realization of tasks which can be delegated to a robot to relieve care professionals
  • Development and evaluation of flexible ready-to use hardware and software modules suitable for the healthcare market
  • Development of cost-effective solutions for force-sensitive robot control, navigation, object manipulation and multimodel user interaction
  • Improvement of robot flexibility by combining motor functions with social interaction via touch, language, gesture and brain interfaces
