Work area: Health
Year: Beginning of August 2017
Objective: Improve quality of life of children with cancer
Collaborators: Awabot / Fundació FC Barcelona
“Robot Pol” is a social innovation project that aims to offer children hospitalised with cancer the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable experience to disconnect and forget about their disease for a moment.
The project’s goal is to offer virtual encounters through a remote-controlled robot with AWABOT technology. It is controlled by the child from the hospital room through a PC with a camera and internet connexion. The robot’s two cameras – one on the top and another at the bottom – offer a complete view of the area while its seven internal microphones allow isolating the surrounding noise.
The child manages the robot and can interact with both the surroundings and the FCB first team squad through images and live sound.
