User experience of conveying emotions by touch

B. Alenljung, R. Andreasson, E. A. Billing, J. Lindblom, R. Lowe
2017 2017 26th IEEE International Symposium on Robot and Human Interactive Communication (RO-MAN)  
A content analysis of interviews revealed a generally positive user experience (UX) while interacting with the robot, but users also found the task challenging in several ways.  ...  In the present study, 64 users were asked to convey eight distinct emotion to a humanoid Nao robot via touch, and were then asked to evaluate their experiences of performing that task.  ...  For social robots, like in all other interactive systems, products, and devices, positive user experience (UX) is necessary in order to achieve the intended benefits.  ...

Experience centred design for a robotic eating aid

Javier Jiménez Villarreal, Sara Ljungblad
2011 Proceedings of the 6th international conference on Human-robot interaction - HRI '11  
We discuss how an experience centred approach to robotic design might lead to new design spaces and products that are more engaging and better meet users' needs and lifestyles.  ...  To support the statement, we present preliminary data from a long-term user study on an eating aid robot.  ...  In contrast, designing from user-centered approaches focusing on improving users' experience might lead to products that enhance different social aspects.  ...

Using Adaptive Empathic Responses to Improve Long-Term Interaction with Social Robots [chapter]

Iolanda Leite
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The goal of this research is to investigate the effects of empathy and adaptive behaviour in long-term interaction between social robots and users.  ...  To address this issue, we propose an action selection mechanism that will allow a social robot to chose adaptive empathic responses, in the attempt to keep users engaged over several interactions.  ...  In the second experiment [9] , we evaluated the influence of empathic behaviours on user's perception of a social robot.  ...
