no code implementations1 Apr 2020 David A. Robb, Muneeb I. Ahmad, Carlo Tiseo, Simona Aracri, Alistair C. McConnell, Vincent Page, Christian Dondrup, Francisco J. Chiyah Garcia, Hai-Nguyen Nguyen, Èric Pairet, Paola Ardón Ramírez, Tushar Semwal, Hazel M. Taylor, Lindsay J. Wilson, David Lane, Helen Hastie, Katrin Lohan

We describe the use of a light touch quiz-format survey instrument to integrate in-the-wild research participation into the engagement, allowing us to probe both the effectiveness of our engagement strategy, and public perceptions of the future roles of robots and humans working in dangerous settings, such as in the off-shore energy sector.
