Robot support in care
The PeTRA research project investigates the use of a robot assistant in nursing. Human-technology interaction shall take over the transfer of persons and relieve the nursing staff.
The shortage of skilled workers poses a great challenge to society. The skilled personnel can hardly cope with the many tasks in nursing. This overburdens employees and can reduce the quality of care. In a research project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), scientists are working on the integration of a robot into everyday nursing care. The aim is to develop a robotic support solution for patient logistics.
