"Haru": Hardware Design

Randy Gomez

This paper discusses the design and development of an experimental
tabletop robot called "Haru" based on Design Thinking methodology.
Right from the very beginning of the design process, we have
brought an interdisciplinary team that includes animators, performers
and sketch artists to help create the first iteration of a distinctive
anthropomorphic robot design based on a concept that leverages
form factor with functionality. Its unassuming physical affordance
is intended to keep human expectation grounded while its actual
interactive potential stokes human interest. The meticulous combination
of both subtle and pronounced mechanical movements
together with its stunning visual displays, highlight its affective
affordance. As a result, we have developed the first iteration of our
tabletop robot rich in affective potential for use in different research
fields involving long-term human-robot interaction.
