Why Robot For Autism Works?

Using a robot for autism is inspired by autism characteristics. Children with autism often have a high interest in technology and usually have a tendency to feel more comfortable while working with it because of the rule-based and predictable nature of computers.

QTrobot as an embodied technology stands somewhere between a computer and a social being. It offers various benefits of technology such as consistency, simplicity and predictability, but it also has a character providing an engaging environment for social learning.

By being a point of joint attention between the child and educator, QTrobot can facilitate a triangular interaction to elicit positive behaviours and promote learning in children with ASD.
