Cognitive Stimulation Therapy using e-puck Print

The e-puck robot has been used to implement Cognitive Stimulation Therapy by Sergi Torrellas at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. This therapy is a brief treatment for people with mild to moderate cognitive disorder with the objective of stimulating and engaging people, whilst providing an optimal learning environment. Cognitive stimulation is to improve an individual's capacity to process information so as to enhance independence and dignity in everyday life. Currently, the treatment consists of hierarchically organized treatment tasks and exercises which require repetitive use of the cognitive system in a progressively more demanding sequence. Therefore, these repetitive tasks have in impact on motivation which becomes the biggest challenge in CST reducing the performance of the therapy.

To fulfill this objective, the iCognos project is based on  Opensource software (OSS) and Open-source Hardware (OSHW). iCognos is implemented on two separated OSHW devices: (1) the Cognitive Stimulation Control System is implemented on a Raspberry PI3 and interfaced with an WiiMote4 and (2) the Cognitive Stimulation Telerobotics System is implemented on the ePuck robot. The software developed for this project relies on different OSS (e.g. Cwiid, Qt, Bluez) aligning the project with the outcomes of the community.

See a video of the system on youtube or download the report of the master project.

E-puck was features on channel 5 and on slashdot based on the work made by Roderich Gross at the University of Sheffield. Here a nice video of their work. See also the following article.

e-puck robot solving a maze Print

René Hölbling and Kevin Moser from Lakeside Park (Klagenfurt) developed a nice maze solving algorithm for the e-puck robot. It uses a combination of different sensors (infra-red light sensor and proximity sensor) to achieve maze solving. The robot follows the right wall, until it finds its goal (a dark sector in the maze), then the LEDs are blinking and it plays a sound when it has finished.

The same setup was also simulated with Webots - as you see in this video, and it worked like the real e-puck.
