École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne or EPFL created a family of mini doll-shaped robots called Robota Dolls. Standing at 50cm and weighing 500 grams, they have the potential to engage in complex interactions with people.
The Robota Dolls are educational toys that can engage humans using speech, vision and body imitation. These robots have been utilized as assistive technologies for behavioural studies on children with autism. Additionally, these robots were specifically designed to engage with children using imitative interaction activities.
The Robota Dolls react when someone touches them. They can also speak and say their name, dance and copy the arm movements of their user.
