DescriptionAlthough previous studies have developed scales to measure levels of robot autonomy and ways to quantify trust in human-robot teams, there is still much interest in determining how trust, individual differences, and levels of autonomy impact these teams. The primary objective of this study is to identify how pre-existing attitudes about robots, individual differences in normal cognition, and levels of robot autonomy affect performance, communication, and trust with a robot teammate. This study pairs participants with a robot teammate to compete against two robotic opponents in a simulated game of capture the flag. Game performance and interactions with the robot teammate will be collected as outcome measures. Subjective measures will include pre-existing negative attitudes toward robots (Nomura et al., 2006a) and trust (Schaefer, 2016).
