The research provides a design-driven overview of the fifty main humanoid robots which have been used over the last years in the revolutionary robotics field. The study provides a comparison of the principal aesthetic and inter- action features in relation to what kind of environment and users each humanoid robot was designed for. In order to paint a clearer picture of the humanoid robotics panorama, products are analysed taking also into account the original purpose they were designed for, with the awareness that humanoid robots often end up being used in sectors they were not specifically meant to. As a result, the research defines a user-centered taxonomy of humanoid robotics and provides a graphical display of the aggregate data about the aesthetic and interaction features of the analysed robots.

Abstract

The research provides a design-driven overview of the fifty main humanoid robots which have been used over the last years in the revolutionary robotics field. The study provides a comparison of the principal aesthetic and inter- action features in relation to what kind of environment and users each humanoid robot was designed for. In order to paint a clearer picture of the humanoid robotics panorama, products are analysed taking also into account the original purpose they were designed for, with the awareness that humanoid robots often end up being used in sectors they were not specifically meant to. As a result, the research defines a user-centered taxonomy of humanoid robotics and provides a graphical display of the aggregate data about the aesthetic and interaction features of the analysed robots.
