Abstract:The aging population eventuate in lonely elderly and far too little health workers. Telecommunication robots are approved to solve these problems, because of that they are integrated in the elderly care, but only a few elderly use these robots. Therefore, the aim of this study was to get in insight in the relationship between elderly and telecommunication robots. Based on the broaden-and-build model it is expected that positive emotions increase the assurance during the interaction with the telecommunication robot and the motivation to use this kind of robot again. Furthermore, it has to be determined whether the malfunctioning decrease the positive emotions or not. Seven elderly – older than 65 years – participate in this study. The study takes place at the university of Twente and the telecommunication robot ‘de double’ was used. A structured interview after the interaction is used to measure assurance and motivation. For the positive emotions first the Positief en Negatief Affect Schedule (PANAS) is used and second audio records of the interaction are qualitatively analyzed. It can be found that all participants are self-assured and motivated. Furthermore, a wilcoxon rank sum test prove that there are no significant differences between the pre- and post-measurement of the PANAS. All participants had an average score of positive emotions. Moreover, no significant correlation between the two measurements of positive emotions was found. All in all, it can be clarified that malfunctioning telecommunication robots do not decrease positive emotions and there is a tendency that positive emotions increase assurance and motivation.
