Robotic applications towards an interactive alerting system for medical purposes
Abstract: 
"Social consumer robots are slowly but strongly invading our everyday lives as their prices are becoming lower and lower, constituting them affordable for a wide range of civilians. There has been a lot of research concerning the potential applications of social robots, some of which may implement companionship or proxying technology-related tasks and assisting in everyday household endeavors, among others. In the current work, the RAPP framework is being used towards easily creating robotic applications suitable for utilization as a socially interactive alerting system with the employment of the NAO robot. The developed application stores events in an on-line calendar, directly via the robot or indirectly via a web environment, and asynchronously informs an end-user of imminent events."
