Right now is an important time in the research fields of Human-Robot Interaction and Social Robotics (sHRI): Technological readiness levels increase and robots more and more enter real-world application domains. For social service robots to succeed in our everyday lives, they need to integrate with human needs. The challenge to design meaningful social service robots is evident as the lack of service robots as off-the-shelf products for end users. It is to my conviction a matter of technology readiness level combined with a lack of experienced usefulness that robots are not yet omnipresent in our social environments.
