Effects of head movement on perceptions of humanoid robot behavior

Emily Wang, Constantine Lignos, Ashish Vatsal, Brian Scassellati
2006 Proceeding of the 1st ACM SIGCHI/SIGART conference on Human-robot interaction - HRI '06  
This paper examines human perceptions of humanoid robot behavior, specifically how perception is affected by variations in head tracking behavior under constant gestural behavior.  ...  These data suggest that naïve users of robots may prefer caricatured and exaggerated behaviors to more natural ones.  ...  For characterizing a robot intended for naïve users, the amount of autonomy that the robot exhibits will, in part, define the nature of the robot's social role in relation to the user.  ...
