Each year, trauma accidents generate about five million deaths worldwide. Additionally, these accidents increase the number of people with disabilities in their most productive years. This is a problem that represents social and economic impacts on families. Most of these accidents occur due to a lack of information about prevention. Low-income and middle-income countries are especially affected because here there are no programs to provide information about trauma accident prevention. This document details the development of a robotic assistant to support the process of teaching about accident prevention in different scenarios: prevention of transit accidents (to be hit by a car) as well as prevention of home accidents (burns and intoxications). This assistant is equipped with an audiovisual user-friendly interface for the child and teacher to be used at initial schools. It is focused to teach children from ages three-six years old. The experiment's results show that the information provided by the robotic assistant during the teaching process is retained by the children over a long time. This methodology provides a more interactive teaching process compared to traditional methods. The design, developing, implementation, experiments, results, and conclusions are detailed below.
