FW-HTF-P: LEAP: Learning, Accelerating, And Empowering Embodied Robot Technology Use Within The Construction Industry
The research vision is to promote a gradual and smooth transition to a human-technology partnership that sees automation integrated alongside human workers. The project studies the acceptability of robot technology through the embodiment of human-computer interactions. Embodiment refers to the coupling of an object and a human such that control can be exerted to operate on the environment. Using an exploratory (pilot) study, LEAP looks to understand the underlying cognitive mechanisms of embodiment and their effects on the acceptance of robotics by construction workers. LEAP explores the worker’s visual perspective and haptic sense, focusing on inhibitors and stimulators to inform changes in social attitudes toward robots. LEAP will investigate the understanding of robotic capabilities for construction site operations and build new principles for robotic technology acceptance and compliance in the construction industry. Results are expected to contribute to the acceleration and growth of robotic technology use.
