General Objective 

The project involves the integration of commercial technologies, AAL and robotics solutions in Cloud aimed at developing a system of products - services to improve the quality of life and of work in RSA, RSD and in home care. The project is aimed at improving assistance to frail older people (non self-sufficient) and to disabled people - residential, semi-residential and home-based - through the creation of the Service Cloud Solution model. The products and services offered by the CloudIA system are based on the integration of consumer technology already on the market and robots specially developed in order to provide assistance services in the Cloud that are innovative and economically sustainable, characterized by a high level of modular and scalability. CloudIA will evaluate the possibility of creating modular systems composed of environmental and indomitable sensors, IoT devices and robotic systems to support home care or in RSA.​
