Due to ageing of the population, providing care to acceptable will standards become increasingly difficult. Thanks to recent advances in robotics and mechatronics, it is now starting to become possible to develop robots that can provide assistance in daily living, e.g., fetching objects, opening and closing of doors and drawers and operating switches. However, these technologies have not been brought together into an economically viable service robot. The goal of this project is the development of design methods for autonomous robot systems, using standardized architectures, which can safely work in a care situation. As a first step, the AMIGO robot has been designed, which will be used as a research platform to investigate standards in mechanical and electric interfaces and software architectures. Furthermore, it will be used in related activities such as the RoboEarth project and the RoboCup@Home competition.
