FWF #Connecting Minds program: Caring Robots /Robotics Care

  • 5-years project, starts in 2022
  • 2 universities, 2 practice partners.
  • Key researcher Human-Robot Interaction

Our goal is to develop and implement novel and desirable roles of robotic technology that proof useful, safe, meaningful, and wanted. We aim for a participatory, open and reflective design process that involves a broad range of stakeholders from the care sector, with the ultimate goal to create desirable technological futures of care rather than merely acceptable ones. The gained insights shall contribute to a novel ethically aligned design approach for robotic care technology.
