Random Research Highlight

The use of a robot has distinct advantages over virtual characters, such as on-screen avatars. For reasons we do not yet understand, children and adults respond stronger to the physical presence of a robot than they do to an animation of the same robot shown on screen. People not only give more attention to physical robots, but will also learn more from robots and comply more with instructions given by robots. We believe that the combination of the social and physical presence has a unique quality which makes social robots particularly promising for support and education tasks.
