Bodily Mood Expression: Recognize Moods from Functional Behaviors of Humanoid Robots

 

This page shows the bodily mood expressions derived from the design experiment [1], which are going to be evaluated in a recognition experiment. They were built based on the "weighted settings", which is an integration of the participants' designs and the initial design built by us. If participants chose the initial design in the comparison section [1] and explicitly mentioned that their choices are because the initial design has better values for certain parameters, participants’ values were substituted with those of the initial design. The "weighted settings" were obtained using the means of the revised user settings.

The "weighted settings" were further modified within the boundary of the design principles obtained from the design experiment to eliminate the inconsistency caused by the average procedure. Mood expressions for both behaviors of an additional mood (anger) were added to recover the diversity of arousal for negative moods, for a better study of arousal. The expressions of anger were based on the designs of individual participants and their comments. For the two behaviors, bodily mood expressions of six moods (very-unhappy, anger, unhappy, neutral, happy, and very-happy) under three parameter set conditions were shown below.
