Abstract [en]

Masahiro Mori found that increasing the human-likeness of a robot can cause a decrease in its likability. The so called uncanny valley effect was studied in robots and virtual characters quite extensively, but the underlying cause is still controversial. One main limitation in the related work is the lack of available robot platforms to easily alter cues in the robot's appearance. Back-projected robotic heads are promising as they allow to easily vary visual cues of the robot in order to investigate its perception in a live interaction. In this paper, we discuss how the back-projected robot head Furhat can be used for researching the feeling of uncanniness and present preliminary results and challenges from a conducted experiment.
