Description

Soft robotics have a set of unique traits, such as excelling at grabbing fragile objects which stem from the highly compliant materials used to produce them. However, very little research has so far focused on the interplay of the different interaction partners in a human - soft-robot collaboration. In this paper, we present the results of our investigation of the influence of two movement patterns on the willingness of random passersby to assist a soft robot in completing a task.
