Abstract
In this paper we focus on the development of an intelligent pedestrian mobility aid that we call i-Walker. i-Walker is a robotically augmented walker to reduce fall risk and confusion, and to increase walker convenience and enjoyment. SHARE-it is an FP6 EU Funded project that provides an Agent-based Intelligent Decision Support System to aid the elders.
