The University of Hertfordshire’s ‘Robot house’ is a unique research facility for human-robot interaction; at the forefront of designing assisted living technologies and innovations to support healthy ageing and independent living.
The house’s ground floor has been adapted into a unique research facility for human-robot interaction. It is equipped with the latest generation of robotics platforms, including state-of-the-art care robots for assisted living.
Researchers use the facility to explore new ways to make collaboration between robots and humans more effective. Following funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, the Robot House facility is now open to both external academic groups and industry for research, development and testing.
