Assistive Robotics covers currently a broad spectrum of research axis, from intelligent robots acting as a servant, secretary, or companion to intelligent robotic functions such as autonomous wheelchair navigation, embedded robotics, ambient intelligence, or intelligent spaces. The proposed workshop focuses on Robotics for people assistance with a particular focus on frail people. This major research issue will affect our lives in the near future. The purpose of this workshop is to gather researchers from various fields to discuss topics related to the challenging problems of assisting people in their everyday life. Topics related to social interaction, intelligent habitat, mobility assistance, healthcare and well-being will be covered. Fundamental and technological research particularly related to autonomous indoor vehicles, sensor and actuators networks, wearable and ubiquitous technologies, and human-robot interaction, will be presented. The objective of the workshop is to provide a review and challenges of the relevant applications in Assistance and Service Robotics in a Human Environment.
