Abstract

The aim of RAPP project is to provide a software platform in order to support the creation and delivery of robotic applications (RApps) targeting people at risk of exclusion, especially older people.This paper describes the user requirements of one of the three pilots defined in RAPP: mobility assistance and activity monitoring scenario. Target users are elderly people who have been operated of hip fracture and are hospitalized at Bermingham Hospital (Matia Foundation) for rehabilitation and walking functionality recovery; the formal caregivers assisting them such as physiotherapits, physicians and nurses; and the family members.Within the RAPP project ANG-med smart rollator will be developed by Inria to assist the users during the recovery process. Functionalities, scenarios and interfaces are defined according to the user requirements collected. Of particular interest is the treatment of the ethical aspects of the project to safeguard the autonomy and dignity of the research participants.
