Service Robotics Ltd is launching a unique solution to older adult independent living later this year. The solution, the brainchild of co-founders Rob Parkes and Tim Morgan, is called GenieConnect® and combines a companion robot called Genie with a 24×7 video Care Centre and specialised software for person-centred engagement.
The pilot project will allow the GenieConnect® user to access a 24 x 7 Care Centre via video link on the face of the robot, using a simple voice command. The Service Robotics Care agent will chat with the user and provide information, assistance and referrals as necessary, to enable independent living for the user in their own home for longer.
