Abstract

This paper presents results from a video humanrobot interaction (VHRI) study in which participants viewed a video in which an appearance-constrained Pioneer robot used dog-inspired affective cues to communicate affinity and relationship with its owner and a guest using proxemics, body movement and orientation and camera orientation. The findings suggest that even with the limited modalities for nonverbal expression offered by a Pioneer robot, which does not have a dog-like appearance, these cues were effective for nonverbal affective communication.
