Abstract

We investigated whether it is easier for adolescents with ASD to establish communication using eye-gaze with an android than a human. Twodays-experiment was conducted to measure eye-gaze patterns of subjects during conversation with two types of interlocutor, a female type android robot and a human female, where the interlocutors used their gaze to identify what they were mentioning to. Fixation bias on the target object that the interlocutor was referring to by using her eye gaze showed that the adolescents with ASD followed the gaze of android more than human’s although the sample size was still small.
