Abstract
The ABRA System for affect- and behaviour- related assistance for families in the home environment is a modular system, comprising components for assessing a person's state, for communicating and displaying relevant information, and for social togetherness. The technology platform is being developed to study novel approaches to social inclusion, particularly for elderly, and new, senior-friendly interaction and display techniques. This paper describes a first implementation of a bimodal sensing module for assessing a person's wellbeing, combined with an assistance and communication module for enhanced social inclusion and sense of safety.
