Currently, China has entered the aging society, and the problems of elderly care have been focused by the whole society. In order to help the young people to take care of the elderly, a care service system integrated with SLAM algorithm was designed. This system includes four parts: ZigBee networking equipments, robot, cloud server and Andriod APP. It makes the robot based on SLAM algorithm achieve indoor navigation and map building. And it provides convenience for the disabled people, monitors the environment security information in real time and shows the physical data of the elderly, which can help young people who work outside master the physical healthy conditions of the elderly who are at home.
