    Abstract

    As part of the ACCOMPANY project we are researching the use of a companion robot for elderly people within a sensorised home. One of our goals is to give end users, such as care workers, relatives and the elderly persons themselves, the ability to create robot behaviours based on events within the home. We employ a knowledge-based approach in dealing with the creation of complex robot behaviours and need to have flexibility in dealing with events occuring at different times and in different timeframes and periods. In this paper we describe our overall approach to creating an environment where robot behaviours can be taught and focus especially on how we deal with the temporal aspects associated with this issue.
