web-based robot companion intelligent control
Hello and welcome to the Data Analysis and Collection through Robotic Companions and LEGO Engineering with Children on the Autism Spectrum project website.
The main objective in the study is to measure the effect of LEGO engineering and its collaborative nature on the development of social skills in children and adolescents with ASD. Our secondary goal is to observe the engineering skills and processes used by children with ASD and compare them with those of typically developing children, looking for examples where students with ASD can be role models for typically developing students, both in how they develop and in how they go about solving engineering problems.
As a facilitator of data acquisition we propose the use of logger robots connected to a cloud system combined with the traditional recording and coding system. These robots will participate actively in the classroom playing the role of master to help students work together and achieve classroom goals
