The expectations of emotional displays play an important role in human-human and human-robot interaction in order to achieve a constructive interaction. However, as we argue in this position paper, current state-of-the-art social robotic models of emotion still neglect the communicational aspects of emotions. Based on different psychological models of(More)
Social robots are often applied in recreational contexts to improve the experience of using technical systems, but they are also increasingly used for therapeutic purposes. In this study, we compared how patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) interact with a social robot and a human actor. We examined the gaze behavior of nine ASD patients and 15(More)
Spontaneous co-speech gestures are an integral part of human communicative behavior. Little is known, however, about how they reflect a speaker’s emotional state. In this paper, we describe the setup of a novel body movement database. 32 participants were primed with emotions (happy, sad, neutral) by listening to selected music pieces and, subsequently,(More)
The communication of emotion is a crucial part of daily life interaction. Therefore, we carried out a study to research which role emotional congruence plays in human-human and human-robot interaction. In our results there is no effect of emotional incongruence between verbal content and facial expression of human as well as robotic stimuli on the cognitive(More)
In several research areas, e.g. in the field of human-robot interaction, ratings or questionnaires are applied using offline and online methods. An argument for the use of online methods is the efficiency. By using the Internet, data can be collected much faster than in an offline experiment and the administration effort is very low. The goal of our study(More)
