GUFO: An airborne robotic assistant for older people

Funder: InnovateUK

Collaborators: Canscan Ltd, Cosmonio Ltd.

Contact: Professor Helen Petrie

The GUFO Project will explore the potential of a small drone as an assistive robot for older people living independently. The project will investigate the acceptability and usability of small drones for older people and develop a prototype with the ability to monitor for abnormal behaviour, such as falls, and find small objects, like glasses and medicines.
