The future social robots will share our personal space, interact with us and with each other to provide emotional engagement and entertainment. MiRo is based on the simple premise that animals have qualities that are desirable in today's social robots. They are robust, adaptable and good at communicating their feelings. Our approach is to build robots that think and operate very much like animals; from their senses and decision-making processes, all the way through to their bodies and behaviours. This makes MiRo particularly suited to robot-human interaction and robot-robot team interaction.
