To inspire future generations in education and learning, innovative new methods of teaching are essential. Personal robots are ready to create a unique, personally tailored educational experience and can provide a powerful tool for teachers to enhance their lessons. We believe that robots’ perceptual capabilities are ready for these interactions and what is missing is further development of HRI and personalisation.
In this project, we aim to develop a new enabling technology: personalisation. We will design and develop mechanisms for personal robots to proactively interact with children providing them with adaptive and personalised assistance in an educational context.
PRO-CARED will be deployed in the PAL Robotics’ robots ARI and TIAGo.
