Human-Robot interaction study recruiting participants
UWS academics at the School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics are conducting research on Human Robot Interaction.
As part of their research, they are looking for participants to take part a 30 – 45 minute interactive game session with the LEGO Mindstorms robot.
The session will involve two game rounds with the robot. At the completion of each round, participants will be asked to fill out a questionnaire regarding their experience in the game round. Game performance and gaming behaviour of participants will be logged.
Participation in this research is voluntary and participants have the right to withdraw at any time without pressure or penalty. This research is completely anonymous and light refreshments will be served during the session. The study will take place at the UWS Parramatta Campus in Building ER G 11.
You would then be contacted by the academics conducting the study to schedule a day and time for the study. The experiment sessions are expected to run from November 21 to December 10.
The University of Western Sydney Ethics Office has approved this study. The approval number is (H10875).
