MCI-WS17: Robots for Public and Social Spaces - Design for Intent Communication, Collaboration and Acceptance
This paper investigates the use of LEGOs and a Circumplex model of core affect with product relevant emotions to study the design and emotional perceptions of social robots, in two creative workshops. The first workshop (n=4) involved building futuristic social robot concepts with LEGOs, and the second workshop (n=8) extended this by including tasks on mapping emotions associated with the robot concepts. By employing these tools, the study explores the relationship between design, emotions, and user experience, to assess the workshop agenda and tools for future studies.
