Abstract:The use of robots has been growing continuously within modern society. They find their practice in almost every sector. The visual appearance of the robot is important because it shapes the user's experience. It influences the expectations of a robot, both expectations of behaviour and functionality. The purpose of a robot's face is to convey emotions through expression and some types of facial features are better at doing this than others. The Robot Facebook database contains around 100 successful robot faces. And for this research, a design tool has been developed that helps users design better robot faces. A functional prototype has been developed which allows users to create a robot face in a conscious, informative way. The design tool was tested with stakeholders through interaction, which was followed up with an interview. The tool was positively received by participants. They were able to make a conscious, relevant design without requiring background research.
