Current society in developed countries faces one of its great demographic challenges: aging of the population. In this context, new technologies applied to the development of environments and tools for assistance of elderly people play a very important role. Within this field of application, social assistive robotics and smart technologies emerge as very versatile, motivating and powerful tools when it comes to assisting elderly people and also helping the caregiver. This article presents CORTEX+, the evolution of a cognitive architecture developed in order to integrate social robots in smart environments for elderly care. The concept of deep state representation in which CORTEX+ is built upon and the software agents that it is composed of are also described. The evaluation of the cognitive architecture in a simulated environment for a specific use case, navigation of a social robot in an environment with elderly people, is also provided.
