Natural head movement for HRI with a muscular-skeletal head and neck robot

Abstract

This paper presents a study of the movements of a humanoid head-and-neck robot called Eddie. Eddie has a musculo-skeletal structure similar to that found in human necks enabling it to perform head movements that are comparable with human head movements. This study compares the movements of Eddie with those of a more conventional robotic neck structure and with those of a human head. Results show that Eddie’s movements are perceived as significantly more natural and by trend more lifelike than the conventional head’s. No differences were found with respect to the impression of humanlikeness, consciousness, and elegance.
