Designing for Caregiving: Integrating Robotic Assistance in Senior Living Communities

DIS 2022

We consider how care robots could be used by professional caregivers in assisted and independent living environments. In a field study, we observed caregivers during their shift and conducted follow-up interviews. Our results point to design opportunities for robotic assistance, specifically supporting caregiver workflows, adapting to resident abilities, and providing feedback to all stakeholders of the interaction.


Figaro: A Tabletop Authoring Environment for Human-Robot Interaction

CHI 2021

Figaro is a tabletop authoring environment where demonstrators use instrumented figurines to play out scenes of human-robot interactions. The positions, movements, behaviors, and speech of the figurines is recorded for each scene. Figaro then synthesizes a full human-robot interaction program that can be executed on a robot.
