INTERNET OF INTELLIGENT ROBOTIC THINGS FOR HEALTHY LIVING AND ACTIVE AGEING: WHERE WE ARE AND FUTURE TRENDS

This workshop, in conjunction with IEEE RO-MAN '19 - The 28rd IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication, has the purpose of bringing together researchers from different scientific communities either interested in or actively working on the application of ICT and robotics to provide services specifically designed for the elderly in order to enhance their everyday life and be provided with high-quality healthcare services. We believe a multidisciplinary environment is ideal for fostering and promoting this research area because of its fundamentally interdisciplinary nature. To effectively provide useful robotic services for elderly users requires an intimate collaboration between psychologists, sociologists, computer scientists, and robotics researchers.
