This paper suggests new methodology for measuring User Experience in HRI. We suggest using implicit attitude to predict User Experience (Affect). Therefore we show a first validation study. The study uses short videos of a robot (IURO - Interactive Urban Robot) approaching a person and asking for the. IURO either approached a walking or a standing person.(More)
In HRI anthropomorphism has been considered to be a uni-dimensional construct. However, social psychological studies of the potentially reverse process to anthropomorphisation - known as dehumanization - indicate that there are two distinct senses of humanness with different consequences for people who are dehumanized by deprivation of some of the aspects(More)

By means of examining objective and subjective data gathered in the lab and data from field studies, it will be shown how people's experiences with a robot outside the sheltering laboratory surroundings(More)
We present insights from a study on communicating Synthetic Biology conducted in 2008. Scientists were invited to write press releases on their work; the resulting texts were passed on to four journalists from major Austrian newspapers and magazines.

UNLABELLED Polytraumatized patients following a severe trauma suffer from substantial disturbances of the immune system. Secondary organ dysfunction syndromes due to early hyperinflammation and late immunparalysis contribute to adverse outcome. Consequently the principle of damage control surgery / orthopedics developed in the last two decades to limit(More)
The presented study is the starting point for a series of task guidance studies, which are dedicated to ease the working conditions for operators in the cleanroom of a semiconductor factory. We want to clarify the question how to best indicate the occurrence of an irregular work operation that interrupts the main work stream. On the one hand such a signal(More)
