The aim of the project was the realization of a robot which is able to move on a table, avoid obstacles and avoid falling down. The robot is also able to interact with disabled children, it can do so by expressing emotions when touched. In addition, the robot has the ability to search for a target color and be happy in case it finds it, or sad and subsequently angry in case it fails to do so. Thanks to this special function, the robot is perfect to stimulate disabled children, as they can make it happy when it is sad or angry, so that it is then able to restart its search for the target color.
