MIHR: A Human-Robot Interaction Model
Keywords:ROBOT, social robot, Human-Robot Interaction
Interaction between people and robots has generated positive effects in people of different ages in diverse contexts. Now, the representation of the interaction process is important to understand the person who interacts, in order to improve the internal dynamics of interaction in the social robots, to increase its positive effects. Into the literature there are models that describe the interaction between humans and machines, however, there is no a model that integrates the most important elements of human-robot interaction, such as the modality of human communication, the capacity of adaptation and expression of emotions, among others; but they appear scattered in the found models. In this paper, a review of recent researches on interactions between people and social robots is made, in order to analyze what has been done about these important elements of the interaction. Then, it is proposed a Human-Robot Interaction Model (MIHR) based on a Human-Human Interaction Model previously developed. The proposed model is supported in three premises that are verified experimentally, by a scenario where engineering students interact with a social robot.
