A Narrative Approach to Human-Robot Interaction Prototyping for Companion Robots
Syrdal, Dag Sverre
This paper presents a proof of concept prototype study for domestic home robot companions, using a narrative-based methodology based on the principles of immersive engagement and fictional enquiry, creating scenarios which are inter-connected through a coherent narrative arc, to encourage participant immersion within a realistic setting. The aim was to ground human interactions with this technology in a coherent, meaningful experience. Nine participants interacted with a robotic agent in a smart home environment twice a week over a month, with each interaction framed within a greater narrative arc. Participant responses, both to the scenarios and the robotic agents used within them are discussed, suggesting that the prototyping methodology was successful in conveying a meaningful interaction experience.

Exploring robot etiquette : Refining a HRI home companion scenario based on feedback from two artists who lived with robots in the UH robot house Koay, K.L.; Walters, M.L.; May, A.; Dumitriu, A.; Christianson, B.; Burke, N.; Dautenhahn, K. (Springer, 2013-12)This paper presents an exploratory Human-Robot Interaction study which investigated robot etiquette, in particular focusing on understanding the types and forms of robot behaviours that people might expect from a robot ...
Using real-time recognition of human-robot interaction styles for creating adaptive robot behaviour in robot-assisted play Francois, D.; Dautenhahn, K.; Polani, D. (IEEE, 2009)This paper presents an application of the Cascaded Information Bottleneck Method for real-time recognition of Human-Robot Interaction styles in robot-assisted play. This method, that we have developed, is implemented here ...
The Negative Attitudes Towards Robots Scale and reactions to robot behaviour in a live Human-Robot Interaction study Syrdal, D.S.; Dautenhahn, K.; Koay, K.L.; Walters, M.L. (SSAISB, 2009-04-01)This paper describes the use of the Negative Attitudes Towards Robots Scale (NARS) to explain participants' evaluations of robot behaviour styles in a Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) study. Twenty-eight participants interacted ...
