Abstract

In order to inform the important consideration when designing robotic applications for children, in this paper we describe and report the results of the preliminary study we conducted in a primary school. Our work investigates the impact of gender development by examining children's perceptions of robot's gender and age on levels of expressed happiness towards the robot. Our results suggest that children aged 8-12 years old relate differently towards robot's perceived gender and age and support the trends in gender development in child-robot interaction.
