Abstract

This paper introduces the shared autonomy concept on the context of Assistive Technologies (AT), in particular using an Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) to support the performance of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) while maintaining the intrinsic abilities of cognitively impaired users and relieving their respective caregivers from full time assistance. The key feature of this tutoring system is its capability to adjust the service to the user's medical profile and his/her environmental context. We present the obtained empiric results while designing and evaluating the service on diverse scenarios with real elder volunteers having a varied range of disability profiles.
