It is essential for social robots to fit in the human society. In order to facilitate this process we propose to use the family dog’s social behaviour shown towards humans as an inspiration. In this study we explored dogs’ low level social monitoring in dog-human interactions and extracted individually consistent and context dependent behaviours in...

A special area of human-machine interaction, the expression of emotions gains importance with the continuous development of artificial agents such as social robots or interactive mobile applications. We developed a prototype version of an abstract emotion visualization agent to express five basic emotions and a neutral state. In contrast to well-kn...
Article
In the future, robots may live with users as long-term companions, thus it is important that some sort of attachment relationship develop between humans and agents. Man's best friend the dog provides a model for investigating what makes a heterospecific companion a lovable social partner. Thus, we studied people's attitudes toward dogs and robots c...

Artificial models have been used as interactive partners for decades to study the social behavior of animals. Recent technological developments have opened up novel possibilities by allowing researchers to use remote controlled and autonomous objects in these studies, and Animal-Robot Interaction has become an emerging field of behavior science. Ho...

Emotionally expressive non-verbal vocalizations can play a major role in human-robot interactions. Humans can assess the intensity and emotional valence of animal vocalizations based on simple acoustic features such as call length and fundamental frequency. These simple encoding rules are suggested to be general across terrestrial vertebrates. To t...
Article
The trends of robotics changes as service robots gain more ground and become part of our daily lives. Service or social robots have to function in less controlled and more dynamically changing environments than industrial robots, and the users of social robots are generally less technologically literate than the users of industrial robots, therefor...

Applying the dog's unique social behaviours and socio-cognitive abilities to develop more lifelike and user-friendly social behaviour for social service robots. The referenced papers are directly related to research on social robots based on previous research in which we proved that the dog's social behaviours and socio-cognitive capacities can be applied to improve robot-human interactions.
