What does a service robot need to know in order to work smoothly in a human environment? Why are psychologists involved in the cluster of excellence? Which emotions can the robot Eddie show? ANd why does he not cry? In order to answer these questions the two research assistants explained their work to the audience and answered questions. The video-conferences were established to give pubils a chance to look into the working environments of researchers of Technische Universität München. They are organized by TUMLab.
