Samenvatting

Many robots for Human-Robot Interaction (HRI)studies have recently been developed with an ability to exhibit social behaviors. These social robots are applied in various domains such as education, entertainment, medicine, and collaboration. Besides the undisputed advantages, a major difficulty in HRI studies with social robot is that the robot platforms are typically expensive and/or not open-source. It
burdens researchers to broaden experiments to a larger scale or apply study results to daily life. This paper describes a method to modify My Keepon, a toy version of Keepon robot, to be a programmable platform for HRI studies, especially for robot-assisted therapy. With an Arduino microcontroller board and an open-source Microsoft Visual C# software, users are able to fully control sounds and motions of My Keepon,
and configure the robot to the needs of research. Peripherals can be added for advanced studies (e.g., mouse, keyboard, buttons, PlayStation2 console, Emotiv neuroheadset, Kinect). Our psychological experiment results show that My Keepon modification is a useful and low-cost platform in several HRI studies.
