What is ROGAMO ?
ROGAMO is a platform that brings numerous fun gaming experiences on humanoid robots to seniors. With ROGAMO seniors at nursing homes and community centers can enjoy robot gaming as a supplement to traditional training exercises to stay active.

Being active enables seniors to stay healthy and independent, and to be part of our society longer. However, engaging seniors to train hard and for long periods of time through traditional training exercises is often challenging as seniors may lack motivation and find such exercises dull and tedious.
Studies show that play is a natural way to stay healthy. ROGAMO therefore gamifies training through a variety of playful exercises that are more fun and engaging to the seniors. Thus, they feel more motivated to do more frequent, harder and longer periods of training.

Interacting and interpreting wouldn’t be possible without the 4 directional microphones located on Pepper’s head. They enable him to detect where sounds are coming from and locate your position.
