Several studies have investigated the relevance of haptics to physically convey various types of emotion. However, they use basic analysis approaches to identify the relevant features for an effective communication of emotion. This article presents an advanced analysis approach, based on the clustering technique, that enables the extraction of the general(More)
Haptic expression of emotions has received less attention than other modalities. Bonnet et al. [2011] combine visio-haptic modalities to improve the recognition and discrimination of some emotions. However, few works investigated how these modalities complement each other. For instance, Bickmore et al. [2010] highlight some non-significant tendencies of(More)
Several studies showed the relevance of haptics for conveying emotions to users. These studies usually cover recognition rate of emotions from haptic expressions. Surprisingly, the analysis of features of these haptic expressions is in counterpart often limited to a classical analysis of variance. However, this method suffers of several limitations for the(More)
This paper deals with the haptic affective social interaction during a greeting handshaking between a human and a humanoid robot. The goal of this work is to study how the haptic interaction conveys emotions, and more precisely, how it in'uences the perception of the dimensions of emotions expressed through the facial expressions of the robot. Moreover, we(More)
