Acceptance of Telepresence Robots During Group Work: An Experimental Study

  • 1. University of Hildesheim


Telepresence robots are an emerging technology that enables social interaction
between physically dispersed users. In this research, an exploratory
study was conducted to get first insights with regard to technical affordances,
usability and user acceptance of a telepresence robot in the context of learning
related group work. Results indicate that the group work was successful
and that it can be worthwhile to employ a telepresence robot for such a usage
scenario. Furthermore, the case study identifies technical and social issues,
which should be tackled to optimize such group work.
