National Project


Sistemas Inteligentes de Robôs em Rede para Interacção Simbiótica com Crianças com Atrasos de Desenvolvimento


Duration: from 2014 Aug 01 to 2018 Jul 31

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: INESC-ID (Other)

INSIDE explores the scientific and technological challenges involved in developing symbiotic human-robot interactions in the context of a physical game involving children. To this goal, INSIDE investigates how to extend multiagent planning under uncertainty to cooperative scenarios involving human and robot agents. INSIDE also investigates natural forms of interaction (including spoken interactions) and how contextual and environment information (collected by a sensor network) can improve the communication between robot and human agents during joint collaborative tasks involving activities in a physical environment. The outcomes of INSIDE will be deployed in “Centro para o Desenvolvimento da Criança” (CDC, Child Development Center) of Hospital Garcia de Orta, in a physical game specially designed by the INSIDE team.
