Development of Toolbox Containing Methods for Human-Robot Interaction Design
For my master thesis I developed a toolkit of methods for improved human-robot interaction design. In the field of robotics traditional methods from product design or human-computer interaction is normally used in the development. The aim of the project was to develop dedicated methods for human-robot interaction design, considering all the dimensions of robots in a holistic way. With this project I dived deep into the concept of interaction and all the modalities we humans use in communicating. I also got to reflect on the design process and the staging, facilitation and use of design methods in developing my own. The outcome of the project was a toolkit consisting of 4 methods, with a comprehensive guide to their use and suggested useflow.
