April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Gabriella Lakatos of the Hungarian Academy of Science and Eötvös Loránd University says the best things a social robot designer can do is bring their dog to work. Watching how the dog interacts with a prototype during testing could help the designers fine-tune their robots, according to the study published in the journal Animal Cognition. Lakatos found dogs react sociably to robots that behave socially towards them, even if the...
