Experimental investigation into influence of negative attitudes toward robots on human–robot interaction

AI and Society 20 (2):138-150 (2006)

Abstract
Negative attitudes toward robots are considered as one of the psychological factors preventing humans from interacting with robots in the daily life. To verify their influence on humans‘ behaviors toward robots, we designed and executed experiments where subjects interacted with Robovie, which is being developed as a platform for research on the possibility of communication robots. This paper reports and discusses the results of these experiments on correlation between subjects’ negative attitudes and their behaviors toward robots. Moreover, it discusses influences of gender and experience of real robots on their negative attitudes and behaviors toward robots
