Domeo is an Ambient Assisted Living European Consortium project, funded for us by Agence Nationale de la Recherche and Caisse Nationale de Solidarité pour l'Autonomie.
Our main scientific role is to develop a specific HCI dedicated to frail elderly people with cognitive impairment and their caregivers so they could benefit from the help of a companion robot. We will also test high level intuitive control of a robotized walker.
Project development saw us taking a major part in the beta-testing and development of the core functionalities of the robot.
Our aim in the second part of the project is to try and test the robot companion and the walker, both in the lab and at user's premises.
As an addition to our own research and development activities as part of DOMEO, we are considering we have to help our industrial partners with the evaluation of the relevance of their products while protecting the users of undetected defaults.

Is a project, led by Robosoft company, involving the design of a smart walker, that could at the same time have: the usual function of a walking aid with obstacle avoidance and an added function of helping people in seating and standing. Great care was taken so that the user could benefit from the walker in any traditional personal home.
MIRAS project is funded by ANR TeSan and CNSA.

TAPIS is an intelligent flooring that can provide not only a detection of falls and their location to the care givers but also an analysis of the walking parameters in an ecological setting and a model of the resident's habits for early detection of impairment.

Tandem TecSan project allowed us to get a deeper insight in the special needs of Alzheimer's Disease patients regarding human computer interfaces. We have produced a first version of an ecologic software reproducing the activity of preparing the coffee for Alzheimer's rehabilitation purposes.
This project fostered some of the cooperation that ended in the CEN StimCo (French national expert centre on cognitive stimulation) labelled and funded by CNSA.
