Abstract

It is necessary to analyze evaluation structure of impression of human for robot’s natural interaction with human. In this paper, we assume hierarchy in evaluation structure of impression of human, and clarify the relationship between lower impression and higher impression in human-robot haptic interaction. Lower and higher stand for a strong and weak relationship to physical property of robot’s motion. We divide robot’s motions in haptic interaction into 16 basic motions. Through sensory evaluation and factor analysis, four lower impression factors and two higher impression factors are extracted. From the results of multiple regression analysis, we formulate the relationship between lower impression and higher impression.
