KASPAR – The Kid-Friendly Robot

KASPAR

KASPAR is a child-sized robot create to identify optimal robot design in order to maximize interaction with children. Similar research is being conducted through the IROMEC Project (Interactive RObotic social MEdiators as Companions) – mentioned here earlier – which is specifically studying the impact of robots on children with autism.

Read about the KASPAR project here or watch this video.

Also learn about the Aurora Project, a precursor to the work on KASPAR which looked at the use of robots to improve interactive skills in children with autism.
