Abstract— Experiencing hospitalization and illness is an important event that affects the child 's development process. However, pediatric hospitals do not fully consider the child patients’ adaptation as they mainly focus on the treatment and prevention of disease. Therefore, Robot 'Mun' was proposed to help children's treatment process in order to provide a pleasant hospitalization experience in the children's hospital. In order to develop a robot for children certain supplementation sequence trial should be made in advance. Subsequently, Human–Robot Interaction (HRI) trial was held to actualize the Mun robot development process. Referred as HRI Human–robot interaction stands for the study of interactions between humans and robots. Human–robot interaction is a multidisciplinary field with contributions from artificial intelligence, human–computer interaction, robotics, natural language understanding, design, and social sciences.
This study was conducted for the purpose of additional development and evaluation of the robot based on comparison of its Human–Robot Interaction (HRI). Eventually, the HRI results will be used to develop Mun robot before applying it to the clinical setting. Through this study a set of Godspeed Questionnaire Series was used to analyze and compare the robot perception regarding Nao robot and Mun robot.
Index Terms—HCI, HRI, hospitalization, human-robot interaction, Nao robot
