Tärning, Betty LU ; Tjøstheim, Trond A. LU and Johansson, Birger LU (2019) 7th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction, HAI 2019 In HAI 2019 - Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Human-Agent Interaction p.214-216
Abstract

We conducted two experiments where subjects rated images of a robot head with different eye colors and light intensities on how well they communicate emotions like anger, enjoyment, and surprise, as well as personality traits like friendliness, intelligence, and level of trust. Results indicate e.g. that green and turquoise eye colors were more associated with agreeable personality traits. We found also that for sadness and disgust, dimming light intensity appears to communicate more intense feeling. Finally, red communicates negative emotions most saliently.
