Robotic Care. Networks of health, technology and culture


This pre-project will prepare the ground for a future research project with the aim to develop and implement culturally and contextually sensitive robotic services in the health and care sector. The pre-project will utilize the expertise and innovative strength of the research community at NTNU/SINTEF to establish a radically interdisciplinary network for innovative research and development projects within welfare technologies. The main project will be an interdisciplinary investigation of and development of robotic welfare services in a Norwegian context. This inludes the development, testing and customization of welfare robotics. The research builds on a basic understanding of technological development as culturally specific and thus both design and implementation will take place in collaboration with the local health and care sector and be adapted to the local context.
