Economic mobilisation agency in Lorraine has launched in 2013 a new project Satelor providing it with 2.5 million Euros of funding over 3 years, out of an estimated total of 4.7 million.
The Satelor project aims at developing services for maintaining safely elderly people with loss of autonomy at home or people with a chronic diseases. The goal of the SATELOR project is to develop a technology for an augmented and sensorized environment (including a low-cost mobile robot) that can monitor the patient activity at home and inside public/private healthcare facilities, particularly to detect anomalies and discontinuities in the rhythm of daily activities, and to detect falls of elderly people. The team Larsen will play an important role for bringing some research results such as:
- developing a low cost environmental sensor for monitoring the daily activities of elderly people at home
- developing a low cost sensor for fall detection
- developing a low cost companion robot able to interact with people and monitoring their activities while detecting emergency situations.
