Tuesday 08 March 2022

One of our PhD students, Brenda Littler, spoke to BBC Sheffield about robots, Pepper and MiRo, and how they support children receiving treatment at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

Brenda is a PhD student with ScHARR currently working on a collaborative project alongside the Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Sheffield Robotics, which aims to investigate the benefits social robots can bring to children in high anxiety hospital situations.
