Journal Article
Dogramadzi, S., Caleb-Solly, P., & Camilleri, A. (2022). A study on the effects of cognitive overloading and distractions on human movement during robot-assisted dressing. Frontiers in Robotics and AI, 9, Article 815871. https://doi.org/10.3389/frobt.2022.815871

For robots that can provide physical assistance, maintaining synchronicity of the robot and human movement is a precursor for interaction safety. Existing research on collaborative HRI does not consider how synchronicity can be affected if humans are...

Safety assessment review of a dressing assistance robot (2021)
Journal Article
Delgado Bellamy, D., Chance, G., Caleb-Solly, P., & Dogramadzi, S. (2021). Safety assessment review of a dressing assistance robot. Frontiers in Robotics and AI, 8, Article 667316. https://doi.org/10.3389/frobt.2021.667316

Hazard analysis methods such as HAZOP and STPA have proven to be effective methods for assurance of system safety for years. However, the dimensionality and human factors uncertainty of many assistive robotic applications challenges the capability of...

The impact of affective verbal expressions in social robots (2020)
Conference Proceeding
van Maris, A., Sutherland, A., Mazel, A., Dogramadzi, S., Zook, N., Studley, M., …Caleb-Solly, P. (2020). The impact of affective verbal expressions in social robots. . https://doi.org/10.1145/3371382.3378358

This research investigates whether there is an ethical concern in robots misrepresenting their internal state through speech. Participants were asked to discuss their food preferences with a robot, where the robot would either respond through facts o...
