Abstract This work combines a database-centric architecture, which supports Ambient Intelligence (AmI) for Ambient Assisted Living, with a ROS-based mobile sensing and interaction robot. The role of the active database is to monitor and respond to events in the environment and the robot subscribes to tasks issued by the AmI system. The robot can autonomously perform tasks such as to search for and interact with a person. Consequently, the two systems combine their capabilities and complement the lack of computational, sensing and actuation resources.
