Roamer in Paris
An adolescent student had been brain damaged in a car accident. This affected his math skills. He became aggressive when teachers tried to engage him in basic math so they gave him some Roamer tasks involving simple calculations. The robot neutralised his aggression and enabled the teachers to work with him.
