Item Type: Thesis
Creators: Khan, Firaas

As robots become more advanced and more integrated into today's societies, it has become more important than ever to research these increased interactions and understand them. It is here that games can be useful, for their unique ability to build relationships between players. Likewise, games have also been used to push new technologies, like chess playing robots being used to push Artificial intelligence. With that said, this thesis will explore new forms of interactions between humans and robots, through the medium of games, building upon the existing technology to better understand and even establish human robot relationships. The project portion of this thesis utilized iterative design and game design to create robots that can play games with humans. These games include Tag, as well as a custom game called Robo Chicken.
