Abstract / Description of output

We present an autonomous empathic robotic tutor to be used in classrooms as a peer in a virtual learning environment. The system merges a virtual agent design with HRI features, consisting of a robotic embodiment, a multimedia interactive learning application and perception sensors that are controlled by an artificial intelligence agent.
