From characterising three years of HRI to methodology and reporting recommendations

Abstract
Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) research requires the integration and cooperation of multiple disciplines, technical and social, in order to make progress. In many cases using different motivations, each of these disciplines bring with them different assumptions and methodologies. We assess recent trends in the field of HRI by examining publications in the HRI conference over the past three years (over 100 full papers), and characterise them according to 14 categories. We focus primarily on aspects of methodology. From this, a series of practical recommendations based on rigorous guidelines from other research fields that have not yet become common practice in HRI are proposed. Furthermore, we explore the primary implications of the observed recent trends for the field more generally, in terms of both methodology and research directions. We propose that the interdisciplinary nature of HRI must be maintained, but that a common methodological approach provides a much needed frame of reference to facilitate rigorous future progress.
