- Investigating age-related differences in emotion recognition of facial emotion-expressive robotic and virtual agents (Philips iCat).
- Identifying needs of older adults and caregivers accommodated by a personal robot’s (PR2) mobile manipulation capabilities, as well as the factors that will lead to acceptance of such robotic assistance in a home environment.
- Examining human factors issues faced by home healthcare providers, and the need for human factors intervention (including future technology) to ease the frustrations and difficulties related to daily caregiving.
