Project Description

Older adults are typically excluded from technology. Our work focuses on co-designing social robots with older adults. Over a year long codesign project, we have engaged in robot rapid prototyping, interviews, design guidelines sessions, and other design research methodology to inform future social robot design. We are seeking a UROP to help with transcription of audio session, organize data, and qualitatively and qualitatively analyze data from the robot rapid prototyping sessions and interviews.

Pre-requisites

Requirements - Highly independent and motivated individuals - ~10 hours a week - Sophomore/Junior/Senior (preferred) - Interested in learning about design research analysis
