This article reports findings from the third phase -usability and user experience evaluation -in the last two years of a four-year evaluation project of the Kompaï robot. It focuses on the evaluations that were conducted in a robotic ambient assisted living studio in the UK (which was arranged as an open-plan studio apartment), a UK residential care home, and an older couple's own home in The Netherlands over two days. It examines emergent adaptive human behaviour in human-robot interaction
