Abstract

Humanoid robots are designed to interact with people. To improve the design and development of robots for social human-robot interaction, it is important to consider how people perceive the appearance and behavior of these robots. This paper presents the results of a study on the perception and the changes after passive and active interaction with a physically present humanoid robot in terms of anthropomorphism, animacy, likeability, perceived intelligence and perceived safety. Experimental results show that the perception of the robot changes mainly after the first interaction. The robot is perceived highly likeable in passive interactions with an increase on it's perception of animacy.
