Supervised by Carolina Fuentes Toro; Moderated by Yuhua Li

Currently, the development of robots for supporting older adults focuses on health care, medicine reminders, coaching for physical activity, and social interaction among others. It is expected that robots would support older adult to live independently for longer and many opportunities for supporting small everyday task emerge. This project aims to explore how a robot can support older adults with cooking tasks. Based on a review of a range of apps to support cooking, the project will inform the design of an interface to support cooking tasks and simulate preliminary older adult/robot interaction using AWS RoboMaker.
