Cognitive dissonance as a measure of reactions to human-robot interaction
Daniel T. Levin, Caroline Harriott, Natalie A. Paul, Tao Zhang, Julie A. Adams
Pages: 3-17
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.2.3.Levin

When people interact with intelligent agents, they likely rely upon a wide range of existing knowledge about machines, minds, and intelligence. This knowledge not only guides these interactions, but it can be challenged and potentially changed by...

Design and impact of hesitation gestures during human-robot resource conflicts
AJung Moon, Chris A. C. Parker, Elizabeth A. Croft, H. F. Machiel Van der Loos
Pages: 18-40
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.2.3.Moon

In collaborative tasks, people often communicate using nonverbal gestures to coordinate actions. When two people reach for the same object at the same time, they often respond to an imminent potential collision with jerky halting hand motions that...

Sorry to interrupt, but may I have your attention?: preliminary design and evaluation of autonomous engagement in HRI
Vincent Rousseau, François Ferland, Dominic Létourneau, François Michaud
Pages: 41-61
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.2.3.Rousseau

The design and the evaluation of an autonomous interactive robot is a challenging research endeavor because there is as much to learn from the interaction between the integrated technologies as there is from the embodied human-robot interaction,...

Functional near-infrared spectroscopy in human-robot interaction
Cody Canning, Matthias Scheutz
Pages: 62-84
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.2.3.Canning

Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a promising new tool for research in human-robot interaction (HRI). The technology has already been used for brain-robot interfaces to affect robots' behaviors and as an evaluation tool for...

Virtual environment-based teleoperation of forestry machines: designing future interaction methods
Simon Westerberg, Anton Shiriaev
Pages: 84-110
DOI: 10.5898/JHRI.2.3.Westerberg

Virtual environment-assisted teleoperation has great potential as a human-robot interaction paradigm for field robotic systems, in particular when combined with elements of automation. Unstructured outdoor environments present a complex problem...
