RoboGen 2018-2021

FFG project: RoboGen

Gender-sensitive interaction with social robots
  • 3-years project, starts in 2018
  • 3 partners (FemTech project).
  • external advisor

The goal in RoboGen is to develop a prototype with a learning agent that, through feedback from users, makes gender-sensitive options accessible to all users and thus enables gender-sensitive human-robot interaction. The beneficiaries are senior citizens of 50+ and people with chronic diseases (mainly diabetes and hypertension). Technologically, the focus of the project is on the upcoming, low-priced social robots in a price range around € 1,000, which are also affordable for “ordinary citizens”.
