IROMEC aims to empower children with disabilities to prevent dependency and isolation, develop their potential and learn new skills by development of a robot-supported play environment which meets the users' expectations for a safe and reliable, versatile and tailorable, ready to use and affordable system. The main objectives of the project are:
- Addressing the three main aspects of playing (enhancement of “Quality of Life”, enhancement of “Social Inclusion”, enhancement of “Learning and Therapy”) through delivering a social robot system acting as a social mediator in a play environment that can be configured depending on the specific needs of cognitive and multiple disabled children.
- Providing a concrete solution
- Pursuing an active dissemination and exploitation strategy by which primary and secondary users, therapists and educational institutions are early and continuously informed about the product under development.
