Abstract

This paper investigates the experiences of Italian and Dutch children while interacting with a social robot that is designed to support their diabetes self-management. Observations of children’s behaviors and analyses of questionnaires at diabetes camps, showed positive experiences with variation (e.g., Italian children seemed to be more open and expressive, and more close to the robot compared to the Dutch children). A culture-aware robot should be sensitive to such differences.
