Abstract

We present a software architecture and an interaction scenario for an autonomous robot toddler designed to support the development of self-efficacy in diabetic children, and discuss its potential medical benefits. We pay particular attention to the affective and social aspects of the interaction, as well as the importance of autonomy in the robot, examining their relationships to our scientific and therapeutic goals.
