This article reports the state of advancement of the RoboCare project, which was launched in December 2002 to address the problem of providing assistance to elderly people using a combination of software, robots, intelligent sensors and humans. It addresses the creation of a multi-agent environment in which all these actors cooperate synergistically in order to provide user ser- vices. This paper details two aspects of the system in the making, namely the centralized, service-oriented super- vision infrastructure, called Active Supervision Framework (ASF), and the robotic components in use in the present stage of system development.
