Biomimetic

MiRo is an animal-like advanced robot designed to help students learn about STEM subjects, particularly computing and digital technologies. MiRo is intended to be engaging, to appeal to everyone, and to interact in a natural way.

Development

SCA were commissioned to design the robot in conjunction with Sheffield University. The character and form of the robot has been carefully considered to be friendly and approachable, but not toy-like. The companion robot gradually evolves from a simple reactive mammal to a cognitive being.
