We just updated the ABOT Database to include 52 new robots we recently identified over the past year. Please find information about their names, images, humanlikeness scores, and dimension scores on the Collection page and in the downloadable robot information Excel file. We have also added bootstrapped 95% confidence Intervals (10,000 resamples) in this file. With an ever-increasing collection of anthropomorphic robots, we hope that our ABOT Database will continue to serve a useful resource for your research!
Xuan, Beth, Bertram, and the entire ABOT team
Since we updated the Database in March 2019, the following robots have been brought to our attention:
Ai-Da, Alpha Mini, AMBIDEX, ARMAR-6, Artie, Cloi, HRP-4C, INNFOS IR-S, INNFOS IR-3, Liku, LOVOT, Miko, MYNT, Pando, Pibo, Wonderboy.
These robots will be added to our database during our next update. If you are aware of other robots that we currently do not have in the database, please contact us! We appreciate your suggestions.
- 2018.07.17: New website launched. In addition to the major functionalities from the previous version, such as a downloadable robot information list with human-likeness scores, a preview of 200 robots, and a feature-based human-likeness predictor, the new website also features advanced search and filter capacities, integrated robot information in preview windows, and radar graphs visually representing each robots human-likeness profile! Additionally, we have improved our image collection (dated 05/20/2018) and streamlined the human-likeness predictor. This new website would not have been possible without the dedication of our student developers, Leon Lei, Fawn Tong, G Cha, and Ken Noh, from Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Over the spring semester, they worked closely with the core members of our ABOT research team, including Beth Phillips (Assistant Professor at the U.S. Air Force Academy), Xuan Zhao (Postdoctoral Fellow at University of Chicago Booth Business School), and Bertram Malle (Professor at Brown University) to redesign the entire website.
