Toward Robots For Daily Life
In a recent survey from the European Commission, 60% of the participants said that robots should be banned from the application area "care of children, elderly, and the disabled", 34% would like to ban robots from "education". Within this framework, what is the future of robotics in daily life services? Two research projects answering this question are presented in this talk: education using specific robotics tools and a new form of embodiment for service robotics. Some preliminary results are illustrated, showing a very interesting potential demonstrated by a high acceptance of the proposed approaches.
