(INTERACTIVE ROBOTIC SOCIAL MEDIATORS AS COMPANIONS)
2007-PRESENT
Iromec is a robot companion that promotes play for physically and cognitive impaired children, in particular autistic, motor impaired and mild cognitive impaired children. The robot can engage in a number of play scenarios like cause and effect games, coordination games, sensory stimulation games, pretend play, imitation games, with defined educational and therapeutic objectives. The games are enabled by the use of a mobile platform and a set of coated modules embedding smart materials.
