Abstract

Person-following is an important aspect in many service robotic applications whilst supporting a person in performing daily tasks. Few studies have actively worked towards making person-following behaviour usable, pleasurable or personal. As such, user studies are essential for promoting interaction design and increase user satisfaction and acceptance. A specific experimental setup for studying socially acceptable person-following preferences and algorithmic design is presented here. In six user studies (171 participants in total) following-related factors were examined, of those, two related to environmental influence are specified here. Objective and subjective measurement of the quality of the interaction and user satisfaction were taken. Results and implications are discussed.
