The number of elderly people living at home is increasing, and this trend is expected to continue since the proportion of elderly people in the world is increasing. Thus, there is a need for technology that can support the elderly in independent living and make caregivers work effectively. The challenge then would be how to provide technology that can handle the complex and different environments found in homes. Further, technology can easily be seen as a threat to privacy and lack of interpersonal contact. Thus, it is important to address how robots are going to look like and behave as well as what they are used for in the home of elderly. This workshop will be organized for sharing knowledge about technological opportunities and challenges regarding robots for elderly as well as ethical considerations to be addressed.
