© IFIP International Federation for Information Processing 2015. This article presents the design and evaluation of novel types of pictorial scales for assessing emotional response based on LEGO Minifigures. We describe the creation of two pictorial scales (LEGO Face Scale and Stylized LEGO Face Scale) through the use of a semi-automatic process. We report on the results of two evaluation studies conducted to assess the validity of the proposed pictorial scales. The first study evaluated the rating of emotions expressed by other humans; the second focused on rating one’s own emotional state when looking at expressive stimuli. We investigate the validity of the two pictorial scales by comparing them to ratings given on a conventional Likert Scale. Results show that assessing expressive faces using the proposed pictorial scales can differ from using a Likert scale; however, when rating one’s own emotional state there is no difference. Finally, we assembled a physical version of the LEGO Face scale and discuss future work.

Appearance of a robot affects the impact of its behaviour on perceived trustworthiness and empathy Złotowski J; Sumioka H; Nishio S; Glas DF; Bartneck, Christoph; Ishiguro H (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2016)An increasing number of companion robots have started reaching the public in the recent years. These robots vary in their appearance and behavior. Since these two factors can have an impact on lasting human-robot relationships, ...
The interactive effects of robot anthropomorphism and robot ability on perceived threat and support for robotics research Yogeeswaran K; Złotowski J; Livingstone M; Bartneck, Christoph; Sumioka H; Ishiguro H (Journal of Human-Robot Interaction, 2016)The present research examines how a robot’s physical anthropomorphism interacts with perceived ability of robots to impact the level of realistic and identity threat that people perceive from robots and how it affects ...
Bartneck, Christoph; Kanda T; Mubin O; Mahmud AA (Springer Nature, 2009)Robots exhibit life-like behavior by performing intelligent actions. To enhance human-robot interaction it is necessary to investigate and understand how end-users perceive such animate behavior. In this paper, we report ...
