Publication Date



Deficiency in social interaction is one of the most crucial issues for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). To foster their emotional and social communication, we have developed an orchestration robot platform. After describing our concepts of the use of sonification in the intervention sessions, we describe our efforts in developing a facial expression detection system and implementing a platform-free sonification server system.
