DoReMiND - A Robotic Application for Singing with Older Adults
European Society for Socially Embedded Technologies (EUSSET)
This work explores the possibilities of using a humanoid robot to support group singing activities for older adults in care facilities. The DoReMiND application was developed through an iterative design process involving user feedback and evaluation. The study successfully demonstrates that the robot can motivate older adults to sing, improving their well-being. However, challenges with voice recognition and group interactions were observed. The application’s potential to promote emotional well-being and the positive effects of music and robotic interaction on older adults show promise for ...
