Towards Software Development For Social Robotics Systems

  title={Towards Software Development For Social Robotics Systems},
  author={Chong Sun and Jiongyan Zhang and Cong Liu and Barry Chew Bao King and Yuwei Zhang and Matthew Galle and Maria Spichkova},
In this paper we introduce the core results of the project on software development for social robotics systems. The usability of maintenance and control features is crucial for many kinds of systems, but in the case of social robotics we also have to take into account that (1) the humanoid robot physically interacts with humans, (2) the conversation with children might have different requirements in comparison to the conversation with adults. The results of our work were implement for the… 


Robots in the wild: observing human-robot social interaction outside the lab
This paper discusses the use of observational studies of human-robot social interaction in open human-inhabited environments as a method for improving on the design and evaluating the interactive
Modelling and Implementation of Humanoid Robot Behaviour
Abstract This paper presents an approach for modelling and implementation of autonomous humanoid system’s behaviour. The main objective of our project was to analyse possible interaction scenarios
How Can a Social Robot Facilitate Children's Collaboration?
This paper reports an exploratory analysis about when social behaviors facilitated interaction among children in a class for children's collaborative learning using a social robot as a teaching assistant.
Defining socially assistive robotics
This paper defines the research area of socially assistive robotics, focusing on assisting people through social interaction. While much attention has been paid to robots that provide assistance to

The issues pertinent to the development of a meaningful social interaction between robots and people through employing degrees of anthropomorphism in a robot’s physical design and behaviour are discussed.
Imagery of Disabled People within Social Robotics Research
It is submitted that the second type of narrative and its way of defining problems and solutions needs more visibility within the social robotics discourse and in the vision of possible products.
Why Robots? A Survey on the Roles and Benefits of Social Robots in the Therapy of Children with Autism
The study concludes by categorizing the different therapeutic roles that these robots were observed to play, and highlights the important design features that enable them to achieve high levels of effectiveness in autism therapy.
Social Robots for Long-Term Interaction: A Survey
The main features of these robots are described and the main findings of the existing long-term studies are highlighted to highlight a set of directions for future research.
Autism and social robotics: A systematic review
A systematic literature review of the studies on social robotics in autism therapy found many positive implications in the use of social robots in therapy, but it is necessary to clarify whether sex, intelligence quotient, and age of participants affect the outcome of therapy and whether any beneficial effects only occur during the robotic session.
Toward Acceptable Domestic Robots: Applying Insights from Social Psychology
This paper discusses several adoption-of-technology models with respect to the acceptance of domestic robots, and examines social-psychology literature and applies it directly to human-robot interaction to raise key points that will be pivotal to how domestic users respond to robots.
