Hobbit: The Mutual Care Robot

From all past experience with service robots, it is evident that acceptance, usability and affordability will be prime factors for any successfull introduction of technology into the homes of older people. While world players in home care robotics tend to follow a pragmatic approach such as single function systems and humanoid robots, we introduce a new, more user-centred concept called “Mutual Care”. The intention is the possibility for the human to take care of the robot. It is easier to accept assistance from a robot when in certain situations the older person also can assist the machine. In turn, older users will more readily accept the help of the robot Hobbit.
