Abstract

In this paper we highlight several challenges we encountered while developing an Intelligent Tutoring System. Most importantly, technical limitations are currently standing in the way of the robot's ability to behave fully autonomously, and there is a need for methods and best practices from the field of human-computer interaction to ensure that user experience goals related to the quality of the holistic experience of interacting with a robot are set, and subsequently met. We also identify opportunities in the form of a modular (technical) architecture, and the implementation of a human-centered design process by including this discipline as one of the core components when setting up a project in the field of human-robot interaction.
