The Center for Intelligent Robotics has started preparing a pilot project in Europe to develop elder care robots, which will provide elder care programs like cognitive training games starting this November.
Korea’s Ministry of Knowledge Economy announced that the Center for Intelligent Robotics was selected on April 12th to be the service provider for the overseas pilot project of forming a robotics test bed, and CIR will be deploying the intelligent robots in elder care centers in Denmark and Finland.

Currently, the Center for Intelligent Robotics is focused on the development and application of robot-based cognitive training games. About 20 types of games will be used by CIR intelligent robots SILBOTand MERO.
As well, CIR’s intelligent robots will provide Korean senior citizens in the Center for Dementia Prevention, Gangnam-gu, Seoul with a robot-based elder care program starting this September, so that CIR can get feedback from seniors and update the program before they begin the pilot project in Europe this October.

From June 12th to 17th, Dr. Mun-Sang Kim, Director of CIR, visited Helsinki City Hall, the model house of Functional Home and Kustanankartano Center for the Elderly in Helsinki, Finland, and he also visited Alexandra Institute, Via College, Aarhus Care Center for the Elderly and Aarhus City Hall in Aarhus, Denmark.

Regarding this trip, Dr. Kim commented, “Through the working-level meetings for the pilot project, we were able to attract a deeper interest from all parties concerned and people in Denmark and Finland. As a result of the meeting, we first decided to run 2 classrooms with Elder care robots at Kustanankartano in Helsinki, Finland, and secondly we requested 2 classrooms at Hotel Viki Garden Care, with the cooperation of Via college and Alexandra Institute in Denmark.”

He added, “In addition, we’re trying to extend the term of the project by verifying the effectiveness of the robots’ functions and cognitive training games, and at the same time, we plan to attract partner companies for commercialization in both countries.”

In mid-September, he will return to Denmark and Finland to discuss and finalize the details of actual classrooms, staff, budget, etc.



* Project Schedule
- August: Complete hiring and training of local staff
- September: Complete Budgeting and Preparation for staff
Lessons and Training for local social workers who will use the robots at Elder Care Centers
- October~December: Operate the project successfully
- December: Build the next plan for the application and installation of robots at Functional Home in Helsinki, Finland
