Publication Date



We present an interactive robotic framework that delivers emotional and social behaviors for multi-sensory therapy for children with autism spectrum disorders. Our framework includes emotion-based robotic gestures and facial expressions, as well as vision and audio-based monitoring system for quantitative measurement of the interaction. We also discuss the special aspects of interacting with children with autism with multi-sensory stimuli and the potentials of our approach for personalized therapies for social and behavioral learning.
