ARCare develops a robotic system which provides manipulation aid for hospitalized bedridden patients with activities of daily living such as feeding, object fetching and clothing. With a possibility of extending to situations, such as to assist nurses and caregivers with patient-centered tasks.

We aim to: 

  1. Model and simulate scenarios for assistive robotic caregiving such as feeding, object fetching, and clothing tasks. 
  1. Develop intelligent planning and control policies for assistive caregiving tasks by efficiently combining multimodal sensing and perception. 
  1. Performance evaluation and sim-to-real transfer of learned control policies. 
  1. Multi-task manipulation learning of assistive tasks for bedridden patient. 
  1. User acceptance and perception of assistive robotic caregiving.
