"Improving the Quality of Life for Dementia Patients through Progressive Detection, Treatment, and Care" cover image

This paper provides a review of humanoid robots and mind control humanoid robots. Information was obtained mainly from journals and conference proceedings on robotics and mind control technology. We primarily focus on providing an overview of commercially available robots and prototype research-stage humanoid robots in addition to mind control humanoid robot systems. First, a history and overview of the humanoid robot is presented. Then, typical mind control humanoid robot systems are described, including the relevant brain-computer interface and the whole control framework.

Based on the recommendations and conclusions of DTR/HF-00049, the present ETSI Guide will provide user experience guidelines, applicable to a wide range of telecare solution elements, their key characteristics and the interactions between them, with focus on aspects involving primary users (clients) and secondary users (carers).

Logotipo de VideoCare

VideoCare, Inc. is a startup based in Menlo Park, California. We began with a simple question: “How can we take better care of an aging parent when they live thousands of miles away?” From that question our company was born. So many of us rely on computers and smartphones to enhance our social life, but the reality is that many of the elderly are simply shut out of the technology world. We wanted to build something that would take all of the complexity out of computing and shift the technical burden away from the care recipient.
