Tangible, affective and social interaction : Analysing experiences of Paro the robot seal in elderly care and among cognitively disabled (English)
Abstract [en]

This field study examined how elderly and cognitively disabled people used and experienced a social companion robot. The following pages explores the questions: Which are the physical, social and affective qualities during the interaction? The aim was to through observations see how qualities of interaction could activate different forms of behavior. The results show that motion, sound and the eyes together created communicative and emotional changes for users who felt joy and were willing to share the activity with others. The robot stimulated to some extent users to create their own imaginative experiences but often failed to involve user or group for a long time and was also considered too large and heavy to handle.

Abstract [sv]

Denna fältstudie undersökte hur äldre och kognitivt funktionsnedsatta personer använde och upplevde en social robot. Följande sidor utforskar frågorna: Vilka fysiska, sociala och affektiva kvaliteter finns i interaktionen? Målet var att genom observationer se hur kvaliteterna i interaktionen kunde aktivera olika typer av beteenden. Resultatet visar att rörelse, ljud och ögon tillsammans skapade kommunikativa och känslomässiga förändringar hos användarna som visade glädje och som gärna delade upplevelsen med andra. Roboten stimulerade till viss del användarna att skapa egna fantasifulla upplevelser men lyckades inte ofta involvera användare eller grupp under någon längre tid och ansågs även vara för stor och tung att hantera.
