Abstract

Age has physical and psychological effects. Mental or emotional access is more difficult. It is easily effected and can lead to suicide. Despite limited attention and solutions, robotic therapy has given the elderly new hope. The learning environment is used to stimulate positive emotion while interacting with robots. It has grown in popularity as a potential benefit for the elderly to improve their health and social consequences. The goal is to create a list of emotion keywords or Kansei Words that can be used in robotic learning therapy design. These findings lay the groundwork for future research on elderly Kansei Robotic therapy.
