The topic of motivation is a crucial issue for various human-robot interaction (HRI) scenarios. Interactional aspects of motivation can be studied in human-human interaction (HHI) and build the basis for modeling a robot’s interactional conduct. Using an ethnographic approach we explored the factors relevant in the formation of motivationrelevant processes(More)
If robot systems are being deployed in real world settings with untrained users who happen to accidentally pass by or could leave at any moment in time, then this places specific demands on the robot system: it needs to secure and maintain the user’s engagement. In this, a common and critical problem consists of entering into a ‘focused encounter’. It(More)
Users draw on four sources to judge a robot’s competence: (1) the robot’s voice, (2) physical appearance of and (3) the interaction experience with the robot but also (4) the relationship between the robot’s physical appearance and its conduct. Furthermore, most approaches in social robotics have an outcome-oriented focus and thus use questionnaires to(More)
We present a concept for long-term feedback during robot assisted indoor cycling training. Our feedback model captures different aspects from sport motivation theory. Furthermore, we present our designed measurements to evaluate the robot's persuasiveness and user's compliance. We conducted an intensive 18-day isolation study in two campaigns (e.g. socially(More)
Intuitively, prosody seems to play a key role in what constitutes a „motivational speaking style“. In this study, the phenomenon of motivational prosody is studied within dyadic interactions between an instructor and a trainee during a session of an indoor cycling class. This scenario is characterized by a strong usage of multimodal resources, a(More)
