We are glad to share an exciting collaboration in the context of the PON (Programma Operativo Nazionale del Miur) Industrial Doctorate with “Università degli Studi di Milano Statale”.
Next2U s.r.l. has provided its cutting-edge HIRA system and the social robot SoftBanks NAO to perform a unique exploration of human-robot tactile interaction staged at the Philosophy Department.
The research exploration aims to investigate the multisensory dimension of human-robot interaction and focuses on specific aspects of tactility: the objective is to understand when the touch interaction with robot is perceived as more engaging and less stressful.
We would like to thank “Università degli Studi di Milano Statale” and "Università degli Studi 'G. d'Annunzio' Chieti - Pescara" and those who made the research possible:
Prof. Chiara Cappelletto - Unimi
Dott. Giulio Galimberti - Unimi
Dott. Marta Calbi - Unimi
Prof. Arcangelo Merla - Unich
Prof. Daniela Cardone - Unich
Dott. David Perpetuini - Unich
Stay tuned for updates on this exciting journey!
