Claudia Tietge | Phoenix Design: By your leave: Care-O-bot 4. May I give you a glance behind the scenes of how to design a “best of the best” robot? – We provide insights into the development process of the “gentleman” robot designed by Phoenix Design in cooperation with Fraunhofer IPA and industry partners. We show pictures starting with the very first ideas, progressing to function analysis, mood charts, sketches and concepts, then on to material selection, “emotional design” and embedding scenarios all the way to the Red Dot Award 2015 “best of the best”. Supported by many snapshots from the development process, we present the development of Care-O-bot 4. Paying special attention to function analysis, shape finding, scenarios and general UX design. The speech provides a glance behind the scenes of how, thanks to the multi-disciplinary cooperation of designers, psychologists and engineers, a “best of the best” service robot comes to life which is suitable for many deployment scenarios. For this purpose, its design is user-oriented, sporting a full set of features so that it may provide an ideal User Experience for each deployment area. Like its predecessor, Care-O-bot 3, it will be an integral part of a global research network of universities and institutes in the area of human-robot interaction, stimulating further development.
