This paper considers the impact that robot collaboration strategies have on their human collaborators. In particular, we are interested in how robot leader/follower strategies affect perceived safety and perceived intelligence, which, we argue, are essential for establishing trust and enabling true collaboration between human and robot. We propose an experiment which will enable us to evaluate the impact of leader/follower collaboration strategies on perceived safety and intelligence.

eISSN: 1944-9437 ISBN: 9781538635186
This paper presents a study of the movements of a humanoid head-and-neck robot called Eddie. Eddie has a musculo-skeletal structure similar to that found in human necks enabling it to perform head movements that are comparable with human head movements. This study compares the movements of Eddie with those of a more conventional robotic neck structure and with those of a human head. Results show that Eddie’s movements are perceived as significantly more natural and by trend more lifelike than the conventional head’s. No differences were found with respect to the impression of humanlikeness, consciousness, and elegance.
