How are robots created that are accepted by the older generation? : A study on robots in elderly care (English)
Abstract [sv]

Utvecklingen av robotar inom äldreomsorg går fort framåt. Det finns ett brett utbud av robotar för olika sammanhang. År 2050 förväntas en global fördubbling av andelen äldre människor. Robotar som kan hjälpa till i äldrevården har fått ökat politiskt intresse då den demografiska utvecklingen pekar på att andelen äldre kommer öka i omfattning. Denna rapport kommer att undersöka vilka faktorer som gör att äldre människor accepterar användandet av robotar samt hur experter inom robotik arbetar för att utveckla dessa. Studien kommer baseras på insamlad data från både äldre människor, 65 år och över, samt experter inom robotik. Till grund för uppsatsen har en mängd vetenskapliga artiklar använts. Resultatet av studien visar att faktorer som är viktiga för äldres acceptans av robotar går in under utformning, kunskap, säkerhet, integritet, lätt att använda samt uppfattad användbarhet. Studien visar att experter i nuläget arbetat väl med hänsyn till de äldre. 

Abstract [en]

The development of robotics within the elderly care is moving fast forward. There is a wide range of robots for different occasions. By year 2050 it is expected that the worlds older population will be doubled. Robots that can help in the elderly care has thus gotten a political interest hence the demographic development that point to an increase in the proportion of elderly people. This essay will investigate which factors make elderly people accept the usage of robots and how experts in robotics work to develop these robots. The study will be based on data from both elderly people over 65 and experts in robotics and a number of scientific articles have been used for the essay. The results of the study show that factors that are important for older people's acceptance of robots fall under; configuration, knowledge, safety, integrity, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness. The study shows that experts are currently working well with regard to the elderly.
