Six Robots and Us is a unique experiment exploring the latest innovations in robotics. With science fiction fast becoming a reality, how useful can these robots be in enhancing the lives of ordinary families?
In this first episode, experts from four universities deliver robots to four different families around Britain. Watching the robots’ every move are psychologist Dr Caroline Jay and robotics specialist Professor Jonathan Rossiter. They want to see if the robots can complete their tasks, have humans bond with them and how they function outside of the lab and in the real world.
