Robot Writing

Context Handwriting is one of the most important motor skill we learn as human. Children with handwriting difficulties can find their academic impacted and often succeed less at school. A scenario, using tangible robots (Cellulo) combined with voice assistant for upper-arm rehabilitation will be implemented to show the potential of this new ros-package. Goals & Milestones During this project, the student will: Learn about Alexa/ Google Home SDK, and ROS Develop a ROS package that enables to access voice-assistant features Develop a Cellulo Rehabilitation Game Test the game with a pilot experiment Topics Voice-Assistant, Human-Robot Interaction, ROS

Voice for ROS

Context Natural language is an important part of communication since it offers an intuitive and efficient way of conveying ideas to another individual. Enabling robots to efficiently use language is essential for human-robot collaboration. In this project, we aim to develop an interface between voice assistant engines (Alexa; SDK or Google Home Assistant) and ROS (Robotics Operating System). By doing this, we will be able to use the powerful dialogue systems developed for voice assistant in human-robot interaction scenario.
