  • Five university students in Japan were selected to experiment with a social robot for a month at TCS Pace Port™ Tokyo.

  • The interns focused on design considerations for social robots, potential uses and challenges in psychosocial care, the development of nursing assistants, and designing social robots that mirror human emotion to establish effective interactions.

  • The multidisciplinary backgrounds of the interns were helpful in taking a holistic approach toward the designs and functions of social robots. 

  • Their findings would be absorbed into TCS’ robotics research team to enhance customer experience and interaction. These could further be modified and extended to assistive robots.
