Social robots are robots designed to connect, interact and communicate with humans by emulating human behaviors such as speech, gestures and facial expressions. These robots are typically equipped with sensors, artificial intelligence and sometimes physical features—like a humanoid appearance or animal-like characteristics—to facilitate human-robot interaction.

Assessing our own attitudes towards social robots becomes increasingly important as social robots become more integrated into various aspects of society, such as healthcare, education or customer service.

The Attitudes Towards Social Robots Scale consists of 8 items designed to measure attitudes towards social robots, including how one would feel interacting with them in daily life, receiving care and assistance from them, living with them and whether they could possess consciousness.

This test can help you determine whether you have a favorable attitude towards social robots, feel neutral about them or completely reject their use.
