  • - A social robot is an autonomous robot that interacts and communicates with humans or other autonomous physical agents by following social behaviors and rules attached to its role. - Autonomous robots are robots that can perform desired tasks in unstructured environments without continuous human guidance. - Being social is bound to humans and their society which defines necessary social values, norms and standards. This results in a cultural dependency of social robots since social values, norms and standards differ between cultures.

    2. 2. WHAT’S IN THESE SLIDES What is the need, what problem needs solving? What is the project about  What are you expecting from the project (what could be the concrete result)  What tools are the team using (programming languages etc.) What would the ideal team composition be? Picture or embedded video Why would someone take part in the project Background of the company / organization © TAMK, 2012.

    3. 3. PROJECT: THE NEEDMuscle injury, poor life style and advancing age require routine physical activity and physiological rehabilitation. For this. A professional physiotherapists provide motivation, instruction, monitoring and feedback with their domain expertise and by being physically present during physio sessions.However, it would be too costly to have the physiotherapist one-on-one sessions every day for every amateur sporting injury, every elderly person and everyone else; even if there were access to enough professionals around the globe.Take-home paper exercise programs, possibly with diaries, provide a low-cost extension to the professional. And kinetic console games can be used to practice an exercise program with a professional before repeating the program self-supervised. However, the lack of physically present instructor removes important monitoring and feedback, and requires significant self discipline to stay motivated.To provide the cost-effectiveness of an avatar without losing many of the benefits of a physically present instructor, we will develop a smart robot that can be trained by a professional for an individual or a residential home group daily instruction.It will spot correct and wrong movements and give corrective and motivational feedback. And keep the physiotherapist up-to-date with the routine and progress. © TAMK, 2012. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. 3
    4. 4. PROJECT: THE GOALTwo applications:• Repeating 7-day stretching routine (e.g. gentle Yoga) suitable for the elderly at home and in residential care• Injury/strain physiotherapy rehabilitation programEnabled by two systems:• Physio instruction of routines by Avatar and actual robot “at home”• Instructor “teaching” body action routines, measurement & feedback using their own bodyBased on the 2012 Demola Innosummer software…• Bioloid biped robot and Unity 3D “mirror robot” avatar• Messaging/communication code…and a combination of java, c#, javascript and human touch © TAMK, 2012.

    5. 5. SKILLS, EXPERIENCE AND MOREIdeal team composition to include: Body pose and 3D modeling – a few body models, many poses and movements (blender) Game engine UI, animation, (basic) physics & communication (Unity 3D & C#) Robot and communications software (java, embedded C, RoboPlus GUI) Application & user experience design and testing (inc. instructor/instruction interviews) Possible extensions:  Including face expressions (with body)  Kinetic body input (MS Kinect or openNI & Asus)Demola Academy Social Robotics experience: Most fun and rewarding way to learn (and get credits) Close support and commitment from client (TAMK) Possibly the most exciting application area for now and the future Express your passion for ITC, coding, robots and human interaction © TAMK, 2012.
