This project focused on using sensors on a humanoid robot to sense information about a user during an interaction. We found that several measures that can be taken by robot sensors (e.g., tactile, temperature) are highly correlated with several behavioral measures and subjective feelings about the robot. These results indicate that multimodal user sensing during human-robot interaction may be useful and fast measures that could help to improve the quality of the interaction.
