Abstract

It is difficult to design robotic playmates for introverted children. Therefore, we examined how a robot should play with such shy children. In this study, we hypothesized and tested an effective play strategy for building a good relationship with shy children. We conducted an experiment with 5- to 6-year-old children and a humanoid robot teleoperated by a preschool teacher. We developed a valid play strategy for shy children.
