The “Intergenerational Games with Social Robots” project is a joint initiative by the Social and Intelligent Robotics Research Laboratory (SIRRL) and Intelligent Technologies for Wellness and Independent Living (ITWIL) research labs at the University of Waterloo. The project aims to create interactive games mediated by social robots that can be used to foster interactions between grandparents and grandchildren. We are currently designing tools that can be used by game designers and HRI/HCI researchers to create better experiments and interactive activities with respect to both games and robots. We are looking for students who are keenly interested in conducting research in creating and evaluating these tools using remote research. The student will be working with both human-computer interaction (HCI) and human-robotic interaction (HRI) researchers as well as with experts in the fields of engineering and assistive technologies.
