Robots look like their owners

According to a study carried out in the United Kingdom, the choice of a companion robot for home use will depend on the personality of its owner. In particular, extroverts tend to choose humanoid robots, with human-like facial features, expressiveness, and voice. However, introverts prefer mechanical automatons, for example those with the shape of a box that move on wheels.

These are the conclusions of a study by engineer Kerstin Dautenhahn, who last year decided to take robots out of the laboratory to observe how they interacted with humans. “After years of investigating human-robot interactions with hundreds of participants, we have paid attention to proxemics – part of non-verbal communication that studies the use of space – an area that has never been studied before,” says Dautenhahn. As the researcher concludes, in the future it would be more interesting if instead of manufacturing a robot and then finding an application for it, “future users were involved from the beginning.”

Dautenhahn is also the creator of a childlike robot called Kaspar that has been designed to teach social skills to children with autism problems.
