Exploring the relationship between morningness-eveningness, cognitive performance and the internal physiological state in different human-robot interaction scenarios

Abstract : Social robotic systems are more and more present in our everyday lives. They are no longer isolated entities, but instead, they are expected to be capable of interacting and communicating with humans. They have to follow the behavioral norms that are expected by the individuals the robotic systems are interacting with.One of the main research directions in the field of social robotics is represented by the design of a natural interaction between a social robot and an individual. More specifically, this interaction should take into consideration the profile of the individual, the emotional state, the physiological internal state, and the mood, among others.In this thesis it is explored the relationship that exists between morningness-eveningness, cognitive performance, and the internal physiological state during different human-robot interaction scenarios. By administering different psychological questionnaires, the profile of an individual can be determined. Moreover, with the help of different sensors (e.g., GSR, thermal camera), multiple methodologies were developed to determine the internal physiological state of an individual. More specifically, the facial temperature variation, the blinking, and the galvanic skin response were investigated.Several human-robot interaction scenarios have been designed in order to test the developed system. The impact of empathy was also investigated. Furthermore, the developed system was successfully tested in two real-world environments, with two vulnerable populations. The first assistive application is represented by the ENRICHME EU H2020 research project, where a personal robot was developed for the elderly with mild cognitive impairment. The second vulnerable population consists of individuals suffering from different sleep disorders.We believe that this thesis represents an important step in understanding how the physiological internal state of an individual is related to cognitive performance, and to the user profile of that individual.
