Kitten Kart

We are designing a solution to meet challenges in the upcoming silver tsunami. In 10 elderly, 9 have at least 3 chronic conditions, 4 spend half the day without their family, 1 experiences decreased level of mobility and 1 suffers from memory impairment. Our group have decided to work on creating a robot companion that can offer medical assistance, deliver items indoors and offer memory and visual aid. Cat is a small mobile robot that can be handheld, delivers items and is interactive. Control signals are on Cat. Cart is a medium-sized container robot that brings Cat to destinations.
