RA, the Robotic Agent, establishes the driver's frame of mind by monitoring facial expressions and voice patterns. Armed with that information, RA interacts with the driver using speech and gestures to help encourage him/her into a more positive mental state. Research shows that a happy driver is a safer driver. In other words, being in a positive frame of mind can help reduce accidents.
