A Robot is a Smart Tool: Investigating Younger Users' Preferences for the Multimodal Interaction of Domestic Service Robot

Yiqi Xiao


The degree that domestic service robots are generally accepted mainly depends on the user experience and the surprise that the design brings to people. To make the design of robots to follow the trend of interactions of smart devices, researchers should have insights into young people's acceptance and opinions of emerging new interactions. The main content of this study is a user elicitation through which the users' suggestions for commanding a robot in specific contexts are gathered. Accordingly, it sheds light on the features of user preferences for human-robot interaction. This study claims that younger users regard service robots merely as intelligent tools, which is the direct cause of the above interaction preferences.
