Sample text

When asking the respondents whether they experienced any difficulties answering the item questions, four of them indicated they experienced no problems filling out the questionnaire. Yet eight of them indicated they had a hard time filling out the questionnaire, because they had no information about the system other than what was available in the image and its description. 2 Perceived Autonomy of Robots: Effects of Appearance and Context 31 Experienced usefulness of the questionnaire. Upon asking the respondents whether filling out the questionnaire made any sense to them, eight of them indicated that it made sense to them to rate the autonomy of the systems presented in the questionnaire.

We can learn several lessons from this study. First, some of the participants indicated that they found it difficult to indicate whether a robot is autonomous based purely on descriptive functionality. In future studies on this topic, it may help to show participants how a robot acts over time, rather than in one specific moment. This could be done, for instance, by describing a scenario, showing a short movie or let people interact with actual robots before they rate their autonomy. It may also help to ask people how they would act in a certain situation, rather than letting them rate a robot’s autonomy.

Thus, laymen often conceive a robot as an acting and thinking anthropomorphic entity, confined to a body resembling that of a human (Duffy 2003). There are some notable differences between the way robots are presented in fiction and the way they actually occur in real life. In the field of robotics, robots are usually considered as computer-controlled machines that can perceive and manipulate their physical environment (Spong et al. 2006). g. smart televisions or phones, are considered robots. In contrast to fictional robots, these robots highly differ in what they are able to do and the extent to which they can perform tasks autonomously.
