NAO, THE HUMANOID ROBOT AT SAN SALVATORE HOSPITAL
Tuesday 11 June at the Pediatric PS of the San Salvatore Hospital (ASL1 L'Aquila-Avezzano-Sulmona) "will clock in" NAO, the latest generation humanoid robot able to interact in a personalized way with small patients thanks to its "intelligence social".
Upon arrival in the emergency room, NAO will help overcome the anxiety, the profound malaise and the intense fear that every child feels in emergency situations.
NAO is part of the project "Robot Therapy in Pediatric Emergency" born from the collaboration between the University of L'Aquila and the Federico II University of Naples.
Children and families will also be able to meet the NAO robot during the Street Science event, which will fill the historic center of L'Aquila with lectures, workshops, shows and interactive exhibitions on 27 September 2019.
