Destruction, Catharsis, and Emotional Release in Human-Robot Interaction
Michal Luria, Ophir Sheriff, Marian Boo, Jodi Forlizzi, Amit Zoran
Abstract: The intersection between social, technical, and economic factors biases new product development to focus on utilitarian value. However, objects that serve alternative goals, behaviors and emotions have accompanied humankind for millennia. This article ...

Where Do You Think You're Going?: Characterizing Spatial Mental Models from Planned Routes
Brandon S. Perelman, Arthur W. Evans III, Kristin E. Schaefer
Abstract: Route planning is a critical behavior for human-intelligent agent (H-IA) team mobility. The scientific community has made major advances in improving route planner optimality and speed. However, human factors, such as the ability to predict and ...

Measuring the Perceived Social Intelligence of Robots
Kimberly A. Barchard, Leiszle Lapping-Carr, R. Shane Westfall, Andrea Fink-Armold, Santosh Balajee Banisetty, David Feil-Seifer
Abstract: Robotic social intelligence is increasingly important. However, measures of human social intelligence omit basic skills, and robot-specific scales do not focus on social intelligence. We combined human robot interaction concepts of beliefs, desires, and ...

Towards Effective Interface Designs for Collaborative HRI in Manufacturing: Metrics and Measures
Jeremy A. Marvel, Shelly Bagchi, Megan Zimmerman, Brian Antonishek
Abstract: We present a comprehensive framework and test methodology for the evaluation of human-machine interfaces (HMI) and human-robot interactions (HRI) in collaborative manufacturing applications. An overview of the challenges that face current- and next-...

Human Perception of Social Robot’s Emotional States via Facial and Thermal Expressions
Denis Peña, Fumihide Tanaka
Abstract: Facial and thermal expressions can be used by humans to interpret emotions. While facial expressions can be a voluntary reaction, the change of temperature in the body is often not. Thus, a facial expression may not always be consistent with the ...
DOI: https://doi.org/10.1145/3388469.

The Influence of Robot Number on Robot Group Perception—A Call for Action
Ricarda Wullenkord, Friederike Eyssel
Abstract: Research on robot groups has often applied psychological principles underlying group processes between humans to interactions with and between robots. However, such research has failed to test empirically whether these principles indeed apply to the ...
DOI: https://doi.org/10.1145/3394899.

Embodiment, Presence, and Their Intersections: Teleoperation and Beyond
Nicolas Nostadt, David A. Abbink, Oliver Christ, Philipp Beckerle
Abstract: Subjective experience of human control over remote, artificial, or virtual limbs has traditionally been investigated from two separate angles: presence research originates from teleoperation, aiming to capture to what extent the user feels like actually ...
