Virtual platforms and autonomous robotic systems have recently gained a lot of attention due to the enormous growth of novel computational techniques, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, allowing various fields and processes to be transformed. Cognitive psychology is a field where such virtual platforms can be applied in order to enhance the current procedures and processes, offering an objective and non-intrusive method, for psychological tasks execution, especially in the case of children. More specifically, this paper presents a virtual platform, complemented with a robotic experimenter and a machine learning processing module, allowing the objective and neutral execution of psychological experiments and tasks to children, remotely or in person.
