3D Stereo Vision-Based Nursing Robot for Elderly Health Care
With the population aging in most of the developed countries, using robot for health care and related service industry is of increasing importance in recent years. This paper describes the design and development of a 3D stereo vision-based  nursing robot for elderly health care home. It focuses on presenting a novel image segmentation method, and an innovative and effective method of locating the facial features, which include the two nose points, for reliable mouth detection. A 3D stereo vision-based method for determining the 3D position of the mouth is also described. Experimental results are discussed.
