NOVEL HUMAN-ROBOT INTERACTION FOR LEARNING AND TRAINING
Artificial intelligence and brain-machine interaction have great potential to change our life as these technologies are able to Replace, Restore and Enhance natural capabilities of a human.
The project’s objective is to develop a real-time direct human-robot interaction system based on decoding of brain signals and movement recordings performed by machine learning.
First of all, this system will be used by children with severe movement disorders, who need a smart toy for motor and cognitive training, in the form of a mobile intelligent robot controlled by EEG signals and residual movement recordings.
Our goals are:
Make physical therapy fun playful
Offer a solution for simultaneous motor and cognitive training
Use wireless and affordable off-the-shelf sensors and 3-D printed robots
The concept of the project was developed after analysis of the needs of children supported by “Aleh” organization for children with severe multiple disabilities.
