MOnarCH – Multi-Robot Cognitive Systems Operating in Hospitals

  1. 1. MOnarCH – Multi-Robot Cognitive Systems Operating in Hospitals Grant: FP7-ICT-2011-9-601033 http://monarch-fp7.eu Feb. 2013 – Jan. 2016 Paulo Alvito palvito@idmind.pt
  2. 2. IDMind.pt ERF 2014 Rovereto, Mar. 14, 2014 Project Summary ● 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.
  3. 3. IDMind.pt ERF 2014 Rovereto, Mar. 14, 2014 Story Board - Joyful Warden 1. Kids gathering in some point of the pediatric area are detected either by a robot of by the network of fixed sensors 2. The social dynamics of the gathering is evaluated to determine its purpose, e.g., playing with a ball, just talking to each other, etc, using the network of fixed sensors and/or the robots. 3. The adequate social dynamics is assigned to the robots which will have then specific tasks assigned. 4. A robot or a group of robots actively engages in socializing with the kids. 5. In general the robots will have to cooperate to effectively socialize with the kids. 6. The interaction between robots and children will make use of the onboard advanced human-robot interaction tools. 1 2 3 4 5 6
