As technology becomes more user friendly, smarter and affordable, development of assistive device is one of the most promising mobility options available today to prepare for the future aging society. The Intelligent Assistive Technology Programme aims to enable Assistive Technology (AT) to be more effective in serving the needs of users by employing a Data-Driven Robotics approach. This is to make assistive devices more intelligent in detecting human intents and to provide adaptive assistance in the accomplishment of Activity of Daily Living (ADL). 

By making the assistive robotics more intelligent, while keeping the cost affordable, it may be able to: 
• Enable patients to be independent while having good Quality of Life (QoL) 
• Move rehabilitation to home to reduce pressure on hospitals 
• Return an elderly, injured, disabled, or temporarily impaired worker to the workplace 

This programme covers three types of assistive robots: 
• Machine-on-Man – Lower Limbs & Upper Limbs, e.g. Exoskeletons 
• Man-in-Machine, e.g. man in robotized wheelchair 
• Man-with-Machine, e.g. patient transfer robot. 

Aside from the development of robotics system, the Intelligent Assistive Technology programme focuses on the development of a user-centered intelligent Human Robot Interface (HRI) framework for assistive robots, including a series of HRI solutions that encompasses an AI-enhanced shared control approach to enable assistive robots to provide effective assistance to help humans accomplish the targeted tasks.
