Robots have eyes, arms and can react to stimuli. In movies, as well as in real-life applications, they are designed with human features, making them more similar to us. But does it make sense to include anthropomorphisms in all of them?
A study in engineering psychology conducted by Technische Universität Berlin and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin investigated the extent of the use of human-like features in robots. The study shows that human characteristics do not always have beneficial impacts.
