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. The machines are also able to learn from actions and expressions they observe in human subjects, adding to their menu of behaviors. It's hoped that eventually these robots could be empathetic companions for the elderly and people with disabilities.
