Current Research

 

For my graduation I would like to examine the human-robot interface from a psychological point of view. Overall objective of my work is the identification of essential features and characteristics which can increase the acceptance of robots and enhance a social relationship between human and robot. In addition to the critical review of the Uncanny Valley hypothesis, I`m interested in the anthropomorphic attributes to augment the functionality and behavioural characteristics of a robot, accompanying emotions during the human-robot interaction and possible intentions attributed to the robot.
