Fields of use
HRI researchers deploy social robots to study the implications of the technology and the design of robots to understand how we will interact with them.
Understanding how we perceive and interact with artificial agents
Uppsala University is the oldest University of Sweden. At the Social Robotics Lab, PhD student Maike Paetzel is currently using Furhat to investigate how people’s perception of the robot changes over time. Why are people scared or robots with certain looks? What makes people like and bond with a robot? Since Furhat can change age, race, gender, voice and many other features which no other social robot is capable of, it provides a unique possibility to conduct experiments where some features are replaced to see what effect they have on how the robot is being perceived.
