The initiative aims to advance collaborative and applicative/translational robotics research in the field of
Geriatrics and Gerontology, a joint venture of BGU and the Center of Multidisciplinary Research on Aging (CMRA).
This joint call of ABC Robotics and the CMRA initiative focuses on:
(i) utilization of robotic technologies to prevent decline in physical and cognitive function in older adults.
(ii) obtaining physical and cognitive signals from older persons for early detection of motor and cognitive impairments and modify
/prevent these impairments and improve the quality of life.
(iii) developing closed loop systems that includes sensors, actuators and algorithms.
(iv) research and development of systems, including sensors and machine learning methods for improving the physical, cognitive and emotional function in older adults.
This specific call is open to PI's from the CMRA.
Proposals can be submitted and led by any full time BGU Faculty Member*
Deadline for submission: July 30, 2021
