ACCEPTABLE ROBOTICS COMPANIONS FOR AGEING YEARS
The project develops a robot companion, Care-O-Bot, as a part of a smart environment to facilitate independent living of older people at home. In the context of this project, we explore rich and natural ways of interactions, focusing on empathy as a means to enable meaningful and engaging relations between human and system.
