Stand-alone service robots are developing towards complementary and seamlessly integrated parts and/or subsystems of intelligent care environments. As use cases in those environments are a complex mixture of multiple geriatric requirements, multiple sets of technologies have to be fused with buildings and building components. The integration and fusion of robotic systems and sub-systems with our environments is likely to transform performance and appearance of our buildings and everyday’s artifacts, similar as done through the implementation of new materials as steel or plastics once before.
