KASPAR

KASPAR is a child-sized humanoid robot designed to help teachers and parents support children with autism.
KASPAR has been designed for use as a social mediator, encouraging and helping children with autism to interact and communicate with adults and other children.
KASPAR has the ability to engage in a range of interactive play scenarios, such as turn-taking or shared-gaze activities, which children with autism often find difficult to understand or perform.
KASPAR's face is capable of showing a range of simplified expressions but with few of the complexities of a real human face.
KASPAR has movable arms, head and eyes, which can be controlled by the teacher or parent but also can respond to the touch of a child.
KASPAR has been designed to be inexpensive, with the aim of making a final model affordable to as many families and schools who might benefit as possible.
