Against our expectations, the results do not seem to indicate that physical robots are perceived as more autonomous than virtual robots. 30 M. Harbers et al.

For the robot that remains in the vicinity of the operator, participants largely agree that the robot is not very autonomous. Yet as the robot is operated from far away, the participants appear to perceive the robot as more autonomous (see Fig.
