Peng You aims to help the elderly not feel lonely when they are alone at home. It is a robotic companion with chat bot functions to communicate with the elderly. It can also detect when an elderly experiences a fall and it will send a signal to the social services personnel when that happens. I want to create this product because I feel that there are a lot of elderly in this world who are lonely as some live alone in a one-room-flat or have no one to visit them. This makes them prone to elderly depression which may lead to more issues down the road. To curb this, I hope my product will be able to communicate with the elderly and help ease their loneliness. It’s amazing if I will be able to have my target audience try out my product and tell me areas to improve on and how I can make it better so I can change it to meet their needs as they are my top priority.
