Yale Social Robotics Lab Research Projects

The members of our lab perform research over a diverse collection of topics. Though these projects approach social and developmental research from varied perspectives, they all share common themes. Robots provide an embodied, empirical testbed that allows for repeated validation. Robots also enable the use of social interactions as part of the modeled experimental environment, staying grounded in real-world perceptions, and appropriately integrating perceptual, motor, and cognitive skills.
