Workshop: Opie robots: developing language material and building your own robot

Presenters: Scott Heath, Janet Wiles and Carlos Ramirez Brinez (University of Queensland)


A portable version of our Opie robot was developed as part of a collaboration with the Ngukurr Language Centre, to create an indigenous language robot that could be deployed in the language centre, and facilitate interaction through a simple set of activities. In this workshop we will go through how to create, assemble, install apps onto and run the portable Opie robot.
