Abstract and Keywords

This chapter is from the forthcoming The Oxford Handbook of Affective Computing edited by Rafael Calvo, Sidney K. D'Mello, Jonathan Gratch, and Arvid Kappas. More and more, robots are expected to interact with humans in a social, easily understandable manner, which presupposes effective use of robot affect. This chapter provides a brief overview of research advances into this important aspect of human-robot interaction. In particular, we focus on the benefit provided for a human interacting with a robot using mechanisms for increasing the bandwidth in communication, including nonverbal methods to create a more effective and stronger relationship between artifact and person. This is illustrated in the context of a range of robot architectural exemplars.

Keywords: human-robot interaction, affective robotics, robot behavior, robot emotions, robot architectures.
