SPRING

Project overview

The SPRING project aims to advance social robotics by developing Socially Assistive Robots (SARs) capable of performing multi-person interactions and engaging in extensive dialogue. SARs have been introduced into various public spaces, but current limitations hinder their effectiveness, particularly in complex and unstructured environments. The project seeks to address these limitations by enhancing SARs' ability to fulfill social roles through natural communication and cognitive interactions.

Our Role

PAL Robotics contributes to the SPRING project by designing and manufacturing prototypes of high-performance gerontechnological ARI robots. Additionally, integration of the software developed by partners to enable the robots to participate in various user cases in hospital settings, such as welcoming newcomers, assisting with check-in/out processes, providing information, guiding appointments, and offering entertainment.

Key responsibilities

  • Designing and manufacturing prototypes of high-performance gerontechnological ARI robots.
  • Integrating software developed by partners to enhance the robots’ capabilities for multi-person interactions and extensive dialogue.
  • Collaborating in deploying the robots in hospital environments to fulfill various user cases and improve social interaction and user acceptance.
