The military increasingly use simulators and games to train personnel for performing specialized tasks under complex conditions. In many of these training programs, Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) of the training staff play various roles such as adversaries, team mates or other own forces. The advantage of SMEs is that they have the expertise to...

High heart rate variability (HRV) and low skin conductance level (SCL) have been associated with low levels of stress. Biofeedback - providing an individual with online information about his or her own physiological state – may help to change these signals in the desired direction and therewith improve an individual’s physical or mental...

Touch is an essential channel in interpersonal and affective communication, yet most social agents currently lack the capability to touch the user. In this paper we show the credibility of three premises that make the case that providing touch capability to social robots will increase their effectiveness in communicating emotions, building trust...

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...

Bodily expression of affect is crucial to human robot interaction. We distinguish between emotion and mood expression, and focus on mood expression. Bodily expression of an emotion is explicit behavior that typically interrupts ongoing functional behavior. Instead, bodily mood expression is integrated with functional behaviors without...

This chapter reports data from a longitudinal exploratory case study of two strategic alliances with the aim of achieving a better understanding of interpartner dynamics. Combining insights from the response strategy perspective and interpersonal theory, we propose that response strategies are organized along the circumference of a circle in a...

When using brain–computer interfaces (BCIs) to control a game, the BCI may have to compete with gaming tasks for the same perceptual and cognitive resources.We investigated: 1) if and to what extent event-related potentials (ERPs) and ERP–BCI performance are affected in a dual-task situation; and 2) if these effects are an area function of the...

Cycling supports the independence and health of the aging population. However, elderly cyclists have an increased injury risk due to a fall with their bicycle. A large proportion of the number of injured cyclists is victim of a single-sided accident [1].The aim of this project is to come up with recommendations for a feed-forward system which is...

Currently, expressive virtual humans are used in psychological research, training, and psychotherapy. However, the behavior of these virtual humans is usually scripted and therefore cannot be modified freely at runtime. To address this, we created a virtual audience with parameterized behavioral styles. This paper presents a parameterized...

An important cue in the evaluation of the credibility of online information is the source from which the information comes. Earlier, it has been hypothesized that the source of information is less important when one is familiar with the topic at hand. However, no conclusive results were found to confirm this hypothesis. In this study, we re...

Our goal is to develop bodily mood expression that can be used during the execution of functional behaviors for humanoid social robots. Our model generates such expression by stylizing behaviors through modulating behavior parameters within functional bounds. We have applied this approach to two behaviors, waving and pointing, and obtained...

We describe and evaluate a new interface to induce positive emotions in users: a digital, interactive adaptive mirror. We study whether the induced affect is repeatable after a fixed interval (Study 1) and how copresence influences the emotion induction (Study 2). Results show that participants systematically feel more positive after an...

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...

Serious games allow for adaptive and personalised forms of training; the nature and timing of learning activities can be tailored to the trainee’s needs and interests. Autonomous game-based training requires for the automatic selection of appropriate exercises for an individual trainee. This paper presents a framework for an automated scenario...

In this essay several virtues are discussed that are needed in people who work in participatory design (PD). The term PD is used here to refer specifically to an approach in designing information systems with its roots in Scandinavia in the 1970s and 1980s. Through the lens of virtue ethics and based on key texts in PD, the virtues of...

Light sources that are optimized for mesopic vision contain a relatively high amount of bluish light (high S/P-ratio) and are therefore effective for peripheral visual tasks at mesopic light levels. Since the spectra of these light sources differ strongly from the common public lighting there were doubts on the performance of these light sources...

We examined to what extent we can distinguish between ‘real-life’ stressed and relaxed participants on the basis of heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV) and skin conductance level (SCL) as measured during rest. Physiological and subjective measures were compared between individuals that were to undergo eye laser surgery and a control...
