The Role of Physical Embodiment of Humanoid Robot Interaction: Focusing on Backchannel Head Nods in Danish First Meeting Encounters

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceeding

Abstract

An important role for the communication management in
human communication is head nods, e.g. as nonverbal feedback signal.
Based on a Japanese study with virtual agents, have showed that the
using head nods in virtual agents elicited more verbal output from the
user, we look into the use of head nods in communications between user
and a humanoid robot, Keepon robot and a virtual agent resembling a
cat that the user encounters for the first time.
