Robots ERWIN and MARC appear on ITV news

Erwin sadThe robots, created for research aimed at understanding how more realistic long-term relationships might be developed between humans and androids, featured on three news bulletins for ITV news.
ERWIN (Emotional Robot with Intelligent Network) and 3D printed MARC (Multi-Actuated Robotic Companion) were both created by Dr John Murray from the School of Computer Science.
They are currently being used in a study by PhD student Mriganka Biswas to find out how some of the human-like thought biases in robot characteristics affect the human-robot relationship.
The bulletins are not available on ITV Player.
