Project By: Tanmay Agarwal, Kathan Shah and Muntaqim Mehtaz
Supervisor: Dr. Junaed Sattar
This project simulates a TiaGo humanoid robot as a "Home Caretaking Robot". This allows a user to use an alexa in their apartment to command a linked robot anywhere in the world. Built during the coronavirus pandemic as a proof-of-concept to care for contagious patients in a safe manner for hospital staff.
Users can communicate with the robot through two modes:
- Hand Gestures - Each room in the simulation is given a number. To tell the robot to go to room 1, hold up one finger; two fingers for room two and so forth
- Voice Commands - The robot can communicate over Alexa. Simply say "Alexa, tell RoboCare to go to room X".
