The Play It Foward Project (PIFP) is a semi-autonomous ground vehicle project! Our collaboration with Play It Forward works to develop a robot to provide virtual interaction and enterntainment for the hospitalized patients that may not have access to them.
We envision PIFP to be a four feet tall moving vehicle capable to be remote-controlled! The PIFP will include speakers, cameras, and a microphone to facilitate virtual communication between the patient and the guest. In our future object-detection software, the PIFP will better navagate the corridors and patient rooms.
