  • Objective: This study aims to apply the concept of aging metaphor to personal service robots to deliver new experiences to users. Background: Personal service robots such as Softbank's Pepper and MIT Media Lab's Jibo have begun entering our lives. These service robots have the important function of interacting with human beings. Method: The robot aging metaphor is to transform the shape, color, motion, voice, and texture, which are visual, auditory, and tactile components, by applying the concept of aging to the robot interface. The robot applied with the concept of aging metaphor forms a close relationship with human beings and provides emotional value to them. We summarize herein the concept of robot aging metaphor and propose an application method using the system and feature of the natural aging process in the real world through the prototype. Results: Robot aging metaphor structure and applied researches of robot aging metaphor are suggested in designing robot interfaces. Conclusion: The results of the design framework of robot aging metaphor will help users to experience emotional value interacting with robots. The framework which is suggested should be applied to social robots in appropriate contexts. Application: Types of aging process which provides optimizing user experience for users should be validated through an experiment.

  • People's thinking and aging ways, which are spread in the abnormal situation called the reoognition panic, are different from those in the normal situation. So the design which is applied to this situation have the different points to be considered. The design in the abnormal situation is as important as that in the normal situation. This study is to evaluate the basic usability of the icons which are applied to this situation. The basic data about the recognition course, icon and metaphor have been collected and analyzed, and then the experiments based on this have been planned. The proprieties and conclusions about the ways have been generalized through accomplishing and analyzing the planned experiments. The most important meaning of this study is to suggest the examples of the usability estimating ways of the design works in the abnormal situation where the recognition panic may happen with high frequency. I hope that this study will be used for checking and improving in advance the difficulties of using the design which may happen in the real situation, by using actively the similar ways to this experiment.

  • At old age, as people depend on superficial clues when they interpret the overall context of communication, their ability to understand connotative and figurative words and articles could deteriorate. In this study, 50 normal young(junior) people and normal old(senior) people were made to perform a task to understand similes, metaphors, idioms, and proverbs, the sub-areas of figurative language. For the task, participants were made to understand a paragraph consisting of several sentences and select a correct answer representing appropriate figurative language. As a result of the analysis, first, old people showed a lower level of performance than young people in all the sub-areas of figurative language. Second, in understanding idiomatic words and proverbs, old people showed a lower level of performance due to unfamiliarity. Third, for the types of wrong answers, old people mostly understood only the literal meanings in all the sub-areas of figurative language. Due to aging, old people come to have a lowered level of the pragmatic language ability, reasoning ability, and inhibiting ability to efficiently communicate with others considering certain situations and contexts. Thus, old people could have difficulties in understanding inner meanings from others in daily communication.
