    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC12 So where does UX fit in?
    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC13 Robotics UX Research Currently academic/institutional focus: Human Robotic Interaction (HRI)
    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC14 Robotics UX Research in Practice “fundamentals” research can be conducted in a lab: • expressions • voice and gesture UI design
    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC15 Robotics UX Research in Practice, cont. In-context research needs to be on location - home, office, etc. • Environmental factors (sun, noise, stairs, etc.) • Still novel • Multiple users (maybe all talking at once)
    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC16 Robotics UX Research, cont. • Trust • Emotional response and connection • Expressions (red = warning)
    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC17 Hiroshi Ishiguro Robotics UX Design - into the valley http://vimeo.com/76017606 http://vimeo.com/76017588
    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC18 Robotics UX Design - into the valley When human features look and move almost, but not exactly, like natural human beings, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers. The uncanny valley is the region of negative emotional response towards robots that seem "almost human". Movement amplifies the emotional response. Masahiro Mori, 1970
    • | © 2013 Progress UX LLC19 Robotics UX Design Factors to Consider • Emotion • Anthropomorphism • Interaction modes (gesture, sound, touch) • Noise (from the robot and the environment) • Portability • Safety • Ethics
