Next Episode of Six Robots & Us is
A unique experiment exploring the latest innovations in robotics. How useful can these robots be in enhancing the lives of ordinary families?
In a television first, this series follows six British families with different needs as they welcome robots into their homes, from helping them get fit to easing the burden of care and from helping them understand the world to teaching them how to enjoy it. Each robot assists a family with a specific need, but one that millions of us can relate to. How will they react? Will the robots actually work? And will the families want to keep them or switch them off at the end of the experiment?
In this second episode, we round up stories from last time and follow our university experts as they deliver new robots to different families around the UK. Watching the robots' every move are psychologist Dr Caroline Jay and robotics specialist Professor Jonathan Rossiter. They are looking to see if the robots can complete their tasks, have humans bond with them and function outside of the lab in the real world.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
But don't worry - it can happen to the best of us,
- and it just happened to you.
