Turning a robot into an effective team-player requires continuous adaptation during its lifecycle to human team-members, tasks, and the technological environment. This paper proposes a concept for human-robot team development over longer periods of time and discusses technological and operational implications. From an operational perspective, we...

Objective: The PAL project develops a conversational agent with a physical (robot) and virtual (avatar) embodiment to support diabetes self-management of children ubiquitously. This paper assesses 1) the effect of perceived similarity between robot and avatar on children's' friendship towards the avatar, and 2) the effect of this friendship on...

Objective To assess the effects of a personal robot, providing diabetes self-management education in a clinical setting on the pleasure, engagement and motivation to play a diabetes quiz of children (7–12) with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM), and on their acquisition of knowledge about their illness. Methods Children with T1DM (N = 27)...

Children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) have a need for social, cognitive and affective support for self-management. The PAL project develops a social robot and its avatar. The aim is to assist the child, health care professional and parents to jointly perform diabetes management. Diabetes camps are an important setting in which the PAL...

We are developing a social robot that helps children with diabetes Type 1 to acquire self-management skills and routines. There is a diversity of Behavior Change Techniques (BCTs) and guidelines that seem to be useful for the development of such support, but it is not yet clear how to work out the techniques into concrete robot support functions...

Conversation Fillers (CFs), such as ‘um’, ‘hmm’, and ‘ah’, may help to improve the human-robot interaction by smoothening the robot’s responses. This paper presents the design and test of such CFs – alongside iconic pensive or acknowledging gestures – for Wizard of Oz (WoZ) controlled open-ended dialogues in child-robot interactions. A...

Kinderen kennen eigen belevingen, waarden en behoeften wanneer het gaat om technologische ondersteuning, zoals eHealth. Dit onderstreept het belang kinderen nadrukkelijk te betrekken in onderzoek en ontwikkeling van technologische vernieuwingen. Dit wordt echter als uitdagend ervaren. Conventionele methodes als vragenlijsten schieten te kort....

Eind 2015 zijn er problemen opgetreden met de performance van de infrastructuur van de huidige voorzieningen voor doven en slechthorenden om een beroep te doen op spoedeisende hulp (1-1-2). Deze problemen zijn inmiddels opgelost. Het ministerie van Veiligheid & Justitie (VenJ) heeft TNO desondanks gevraagd hen te adviseren over eventuele...

For effective child education, playing games with a social robot should be motivating for a longer period of time. One aspect that can affect the motivation of a child is the difficulty of a game. The game should be perceived as challenging, while at the same time, the child should be confident to meet the challenge. We designed a user modelling...

Despite its acknowledged benefits for health promotion, the full potential of persuasive technology is not (yet) reached in regard to usability, effectiveness, and reproducibility. It often lacks an effective combination of technical features and behavior change strategies. This paper presents a multidisciplinary approach, addressing both...

Social robots have the potential to provide support in a number of practical domains, such as learning and behaviour change. This potential is particularly relevant for children, who have proven receptive to interactions with social robots. To reach learning and therapeutic goals, a number of issues need to be investigated, notably the design of...

In the European project ALIZ-e, many aspects of social robot interaction were evaluated, mainly with healthy children. In this paper, we take the lessons learned and apply them in a field experiment with diabetic children. The observations showed that a robot requesting help added to the bonding, that the children with diabetes acquired relevant...

This paper describes our experience in designing, developing and deploying systems for supporting human-robot teams during disaster response. It is based on R&D performed in the EU-funded project NIFTi. NIFTi aimed at building intelligent, collaborative robots that could work together with humans in exploring a disaster site, to make a...

Children with diabetes can benefit from keeping a diary, but seldom keep one. Within the European ALIZ-E project a robot companion is being developed that, among other things, will be able to support and motivate diabetic children to keep a diary. This paper discusses the study of a robot supporting the use of an online diary. Diabetic children...

Social robots may comfort and support children who have to cope with chronic diseases like diabetes. In social interactions, it is important to be able to express recognizable emotions. Studies show that the iCat robot, with its humanoid facial features, has this capability. In this paper we look if a Nao robot, without humanoid facial features,...

Expressive behaviour is a vital aspect of human interaction. A model for adaptive emotion expression was developed for the Nao robot. The robot has an internal arousal and va- lence value, which are in uenced by the emotional state of its interaction partner and emotional occurrences such as win- ning a game. It expresses these emotions through...

Child-Robot Interaction (cHRI) is a promising point of entry into the rich challenge that social HRI is. Starting from three years of experiences gained in a cHRI research project, this paper offers a view on the opportunities offered by letting robots interact with children rather than with adults and having the interaction in real-world...

A case study is presented in which a socially capable robot played multiple activities during multiple sessions with hospitalised children. In this paper we show how an environment was created in which children engage with the robot and feel at liberty to express their preferences regarding which activities to play. Valuable lessons regarding...
