Title: Knowing when to assist: Developmental issues in lifelong assistive robotics
Authors: Demiris, Y
Item Type: Conference Paper
Abstract: Children and adults with sensorimotor disabilities can significantly increase their autonomy through the use of assistive robots. As the field progresses from short-term, task-specific solutions to long-term, adaptive ones, new challenges are emerging. In this paper a lifelong methodological approach is presented, that attempts to balance the immediate context-specific needs of the user, with the long-term effects that the robots assistance can potentially have on the users developmental trajectory.
