Abstract
The paper introduces an online user study onapplications for social robots with 127 participants. The potential users proposed 570 application scenarios based on the appearance and functionality of four robots presented (AIBO,BARTHOC, BIRON, iCat). The items were grouped into 13 categories which are interpreted and discussed by means of four dimensions: public vs. private use, intensity of interaction,complexity of interaction model, and functional vs. human-like appearance. The interpretation lead to three classes of applications for social robots according to the degree of social interaction: (1) Specialized Applications where the robot has to perform clearly defined tasks which are delegated by a user, (2)Public Applications which are directed to the communication with many users, and (3) Individual Applications with the need of a highly elaborated social model to maintain a variety of situations with few people.
