Multi-Robot Cognitive Systems Operating in Hospitals

monarch-logoPeriodo: 2013-2016

The MONARCH project focus is on social robotics using networked heterogeneous robots and sensors to interact with children, staff, and visitors, engaging in edutainment activities in the pediatric infirmary at the portuguese oncology institute at lisbon (IPOL), portugal. Besides being a realistic scenario, the ethical regulations enforced by IPOL for the pediatric ward introduce important constraints on the use of some technologies, representing a challenging research opportunity. Moreover, it is an environment where socially admissible interactions can be well framed and implemented within current state of the art technologies.
