Erwin the robot, smiling
Erwin is part of the Felix Growing project, which is aimed at making robots appear more human so they can be successfully integrated into homes and businesses in the future.
John Murray from the University of Hertfordshire told Silicon.com that the technology could also be used to help autistic children develop their ability to relate to the others more effectively.
The robot also has microphones that can react to a human voice and can distinguish between different speakers.
