The Giraff telepresence robot helps elderly people remain in their homes for longer, and allows them to stay connected to their friends and family in the most personal way possible without actually being there. The image of the remote user is displayed on the screen and the robot can be driven around to view anything in its vicinity, almost as if you were there in person. The Giraff robot can be combined with the Giraff Plus solution, which is currently being supported by the EU (European Union). Giraff Plus combines the Giraff's telepresence capabilities with sensors which are placed around the home which collect both environmental and physiological data.
