There is currently collaboration between our ARAV research
group and the Sharjah Autism Center.

closely with the Sharjah Autism Center to develop robotic applications for the
rehabilitation of autistic children as part of their graduation project.
To strengthen this collaboration, the coordinator of the ARAV
research group, Dr. Tamer Rabie, gave a talk and participated in the panel
