Abstract:The Nabaztag is a robot rabbit that this research has given a new purpose. The purpose is to help university students with generalized anxiety disorder symptoms or depressive symptoms, which are common in that group and often come together. The focus is on these students who are in therapy, specifically cognitive behavioural therapy. Current solutions for problems this target audience faces are found and the problems are analysed. The outcome of the ideation is a social robot companion that supports them both in their treatment and their studies by e.g. helping with sticking to a planning. This solution is then evaluated by peers from different fields according to a scenario of a student who struggles. Then, a prototype is created where the interaction is tested on whether the student could form a bond with the robot enough and on whether there are major problems in general. The result of these evaluations is that people believe there is potential for the concept if it was worked out further, but that there are many flaws currently in the system that would need to be fixed.
