Researchers Study How and Why Children Abuse Robots to Help Develop New Escape Maneuvers

A video taken by researchers at the ATR Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories shows a number of children interacting and becoming violent with a remotely controlled Robovie 2 robot during an experiment at an Osaka, Japan shopping center. The researchers used data from the experiment to develop an algorithm to help the robot evade future abuse.
