Investigating the effect of the reality gap on the human psychophysiological state in the context of human-swarm interaction

Gaëtan Podevijn, Rehan O'Grady, Carole Fantini-Hauwel, Marco Dorigo
2016 PeerJ Computer Science  
In this paper, we study the effect of the reality gap on the psychophysiological reactions of humans interacting with a robot swarm.  ...  The reality gap is the discrepancy between simulation and realitythe same behavioural algorithm results in different robot swarm behaviours in simulation and in reality (with real robots).  ...  The e-puck robot is designed for educational and research purposes (Mondada et al., 2009) . The extended version of the e-puck robot is 13 cm high and has a diameter of 7 cm.  ...
