The Feelix Growing project is working on making robots more life like. Using sensors and cameras that detect facial expressions, voice fluctuation, gait recognition and proximity, researchers are giving the robots the ability to detect and understand emotions in humans.

It’s hoped that eventually these robots could be empathetic companions for the elderly and people with disabilities.
