Abstract

Needless to say, it is not particularly safe to go walking alone in the dark. Therefore, we considered that a drone could be used as a "companion" for a pedestrian in the interests of safety. We evaluated the perceived warmth and competence depending on manipulations of human nature characteristics, which is kind of anthropomorphism. Consequently, we are going to suggest the companion drone, walking along with users in the dark, to reduce their anxiety.
