In einer Serie von Workshops für einen neuen Kunden entwickeln wir mit Kunden, Händlern und internen MitarbeiterInnen Gestaltungskonzepte und Geschäftsmodelle für einen Online-Shop. Co-Creation mit Papierprototypen, Kartierungs- und Sortierübungen und Geschäftsmodellierung dienen der Vorbereitung eines agilen Entwicklungsprozesses. Sinn dieser Vorgehensweise ist es, unterschiedliche Anspruchsgruppen mit ihren unterschiedlichen Erfahrungen, Interessen und Wertvorstellungen in die Entwicklung von Ergebnissen einzubinden, die von allen wertgeschätzt werden.

Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) became a critical component to the success, acceptance, and capability of robot systems. We review history and cultural factors within the development of robots focusing on humanoid and service robots in Japan. Robot models for different application domains focusing developmental efforts are being presented.
