Robots with character
Robots are increasingly deployed in hospitals to cut costs. In these environments, where people can feel anxious and vulnerable, it is important that we can respond to robots intuitively. In Project Mo we addressed this through applying Disney’s knowledge of non-verbal communication in the design of transport robots. In doing so, the project works towards robots that are as easily understood as animated characters.
