Abstract

The explosion of the pandemic and the need for social distancing has meant that robotics has more and more space in our daily lives. The Coronavirus epidemic (COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2) presents us with a challenge that we are currently facing, and which globally highlights our fragility. This fragility and consequent loneliness is perceived more and more every day; that implies the importance of using new technologies able to cope with a new aspect that had not been thought of so far, but which is now dictated by the pandemic consequences. As a result, these new issues brought by the pandemic imply an increasing need to make robots more and more intelligent and empathic with human beings.
