Make an Astronaut Smile (MARS) Robot

I created the MARS bot for astronauts going for long term space travel to mars or for an extended time at the International Space Station. When astronauts are away from the family they may feel sad, miss familiar things, and remember about home. The MARS bot identifies when astronauts are feeling sad through their facial emotions. It then tries to cheer them up by giving them a High Five and plays them their favourite song.

What are the problems you aim to help solve with this project?:
Robots that are able to understand humans better and make them happy. Useful when kids are indoors during COVID19 pandemic.
