Jaime Andres Rincon, Javi Palanca, Vicent Botti, Angelo Costa, Paulo Novais, Vicente Julian, Carlos Carrascosa


This paper proposes the development of a system to integrally control the activities carried out by a group of elderly people in a nursing home. The system is basically composed of a robot and an app that proposes activities, and also an individual wristband that monitors each elderly person to detect if they get bored or have fun doing the activities. As commented, the system also includes an app that, among other things, allows the caregiver to monitor the activities of the group or in an individualized way.
