A systematic review was carried out to examine the use of robots in early childhood and lower level education. The paper synthesizes the findings of research studies carried out in the last ten years and looks at the influence of robots on children and education. Four major factors are examined – the type of studies conducted, the influence of robots on(More)
—For rehabilitation applications using multiple types of feedback can help speed up posture correction of the subject – visual cues are particularly helpful in providing global information to the subjects. This paper presents a system that aids students to mimic a master's arm posture using vibrotactile feedback and visual cues. The design of the(More)
