Abstract

Recently, the development and deployment of social robots to support children with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) has attracted the attention of researchers in di�erent �elds. The main aim of this multidisciplinary research �eld is to teach and improve the social skills and capabilities of the children through interacting and playing with robots how- ever, due to the spontaneous nature of children with ASC, as well as the inherent complexity of developing autonomous interactive robots, creating such systems is a challenging task. In this paper, we present our progress in the context of the BabyRobot project, towards developing an interactive humanoid robot to support autonomous child-robot interac- tions (CRI). We have been developing an interactive sense- think-act architecture to enable the humanoid robot Kaspar to display goal-oriented adaptive behaviours while playing, communicating, and collaborating with children. The �nal part of this paper reports on the initial tests of the proposed interactive architecture.
