Researching human-robot interaction “in the wild” can sometimes require insight from different fields. Experiments that involve collaborative tasks are valuable opportunities for studying HRI and developing new tools. The following describes a framework for an “in the wild” experiment situated in a public museum that involved a Wizard of OZ (WOZ) controlled robot. The UR10 is a non-humanoid collaborative robot arm and was programmed to engage in a collaborative drawing task. The purpose of this study was to evaluate how movement by a non-humanoid robot could affect participant experience. While the current framework is designed for this particular task, the control architecture could be built upon to provide a base for various collaborative studies.
