The demographic trend is towards ageing in our society and the number of people with physical impairments and disabilities will increase dramatically in the future. It is necessary to deliver advanced healthcare and services to these people so that they can live independently and stay well at home throughout their lifespan. This paper presents a multi-robot architecture for ambient assisted living of the elderly and disabled, which is based on the robot operating system (ROS). A communication bridge is proposed for different means of human robot interaction, and ROS provides a framework for rapid system development with a reduced cost. Some experimental results are given in the paper to demonstrate the feasibility and performance of the proposed system. © 2013 IEEE.
