Abstract

Two perspectives define a human being in his social sphere: appearance and behaviour. The aesthetic aspect is the first significant element that impacts a communication while the behavioural aspect is a crucial factor in evaluating the ongoing interaction. In particular, we have more expectations when interacting with anthropomorphic robots and we tend to define them believable if they respect human social conventions. Therefore researchers are focused both on increasingly anthropomorphizing the embodiment of the robots and on giving the robots a realistic behaviour. This paper describes our research on making a humanoid robot socially interacting with human beings in a believable way. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
