Augmented Human Assistance

The AHA: Augmented Human Assistance project is a novel, integrative and cross-disciplinar approach of 4 portuguese universities, CMU and 2 portuguese industry partners that combines innovation and fundamental research in the areas of human computer interaction, robotics, serious games and physiological computing.

AHA’s goal is to develop a new generation of ICT based solutions that have the potential to transform healthcare by optimizing resource allocation, reducing costs, improving diagnoses and enabling novel therapies, thus increasing quality of life.

The project proposes the development and deployment of a novel Robotic Assistance Platform designed to support healthy lifestyle, sustain active aging, and support those with motor deficits.
