1 Service Robot for Care Gesubsidieerd door het Ministerie van Economische Zaken en de Provincie Noord-Brabant Kees van Hee

2 2 Teleoperated Service robots Two components: master = cockpit and slave = service robot Goal: service robot can perform all human manual actions, at least at any place a human can do it The (human) operator may overrule the control completely Manipulation devices Feedback devices pr o c e s s or mastermaster internet

3 3 Tele-operations Ultimate form of remote control Manual actions over a great distance Extending human manual reach at world scale Uncouple the place of action from the place where the action is devised Compare it with electricity: the place where it is produced is uncoupled from the place where it is consumed Therefore: Teleoperations is a new Industrial Revolution!

4 4 Examples of teleoperations

5 5 What service robots can do more… Service robots can do more than a human: –Moving with more power –Moving with different speed –Moving over greater distance –Moving with more precision –They can multiply actions –They can work at place a human does not want to be We can program them for special tasks (more autonomy) They can learn from example actions (learning by doing)

6 Service vs industrial robots Service Arbitrary tasks Non routine tasks Relatively slowly Moderate accuracy Visual servoing, haptic feedback Navigation Acting safely in a human environment Industrial Programmed tasks Only routine tasks High speed High precision Controlled by position Static or moving over fixed rail Industrial environment (safety cage) 6

7 Application domains 7

8 Why Service Robots in Home-care? Cost of care is increasing dramatically In a few years there will be more new jobs needed in (home) care than new employees entering the labour market Care clients want to live at home longer Care clients want to keep there independence and privacy

9 Care from a distance (current situation) Video communication to support people at home Fall detection Alarming, signaling Only information exchange; No physical intervention at the client site Mextal, Marcel Gielen 9

10 TSR Project Goal: to build a demonstrator tele-operated robot for home care en perform experiments in a home environment Budget: 2.7 milion Euro Duration: October 2009 until Juni 2012 Subsidienten: Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs & Province Noord-Brabant 11 partners: 7 MSE, 3 research, 1 care organization

11 Setup 11

12 12 Daily Life Activities

13 Use Cases 13 Turning on the light Opening Doors Pouring Drinks Heating a Pre-cooked Meal Bringing Breakfast Items Personal Alarm

14 Iterations 14 Phase 0 Phase 1Phase 2

15 Rose 0: March 2010 Goal: Proof of concept First control experiences: To grab something manually is difficult Perceiving Depth is difficult A wheel chair is too big and heavy for autonomous navigation in home

16 Rose 1: March 2011 Goal: The first workable demonstrator First experiments with home-care employees and control from a distance Enthousiastic Operators First automated Tasks: Grab - Place Task space needs to be increased Two wheel drive is not manouvrable enough Development in home environment is an enormous boost

17 Rose 2 (Rose): March 2012 Goal: A new robot based on previous experiences Experiments in home, with home-care employees and clients Enthousiastic clients More autonomy, towards useful applications Concept fully operational

19 User perspective Human-Machine Interaction Social behavior Safety and reliability Cost-effectiveness Technology perspective Navigation while carying objects Visual servoing Object recognition (from database) 19 Challenges (1/2)

20 Challenges (2/2) 20 Self-learning system: programming-by-exampled Haptic feedback Software architecture: plug and play

21 New use cases (1/2) 21 Contact with Care Center and relatives Memory support Emergeny support Serarch, get and bring

22 New use cases (2/2) 22 Shaving support Preparing a simple meal Dish wasser loading Table cleaning

23 TSR as household assistant Many applications: e.g. –Feeding the cat when you are at work –Watering the plants in your holiday home Same technology! ´A robot in every household´ (Bill Gates) 23

24 Market for care robots 2.2 M people over 65 in Netherlands 10% is a potential TSR user: 220.000 5% will really use it: 11.000 Lifecycle: 5 year Yearly replacement: 2.200 stuks Price per robot: 20.000€ Market: 44 M€ per year only the Netherlands! 24

25 Business Case (1/2) Three alternatives: 1.Rose 24.7 + professional care 2 hr p. day 2.Permanent care+ professional care 1hr p. day 3.In elderly home Yearly cost: 1.58K 2.270K 3.70K 25

26 Business Case (2/2) Rose with continuous operator assistance: € 29K (€ 6K robot, €23K shared operator(1/15)) Professional care 1hr p. day: € 14,6K (€ 40 p. hr) Break even: 3 hr p. day prof. help = continuous robot assistance alternative 1: 6K+23K+29K= 58K 26

27 Economical impact Roll out in other countries Expanding to other application domains Creation of a new industry, using existing suppliers New services: consultancy and taylor-made software Challenges for existing industries: teleoperations 27

28 Other Domains Care institutions Holiday homes Office Environment Maintenance Complex installations Clean-rooms Security
