Robots de téléprésence et intersubjectivation

Abstract : Objectives
The aim of this paper was to analyze the experiences of students to whom a telepresence robot was made available in periods during which they were prevented from attending university courses.

This research uses a psychopathological approach to everyday virtual life. At the end of the period of use of the robot, non-directive research interviews were conducted with the students.

The analysis shows that the device can be experienced by these students as a potential space of subjectivation because it appears to help avoid a possible collapse and thus facilitates the mobilization of psychic elements that were not previously elaborated.

The robot is experienced as the possibility of an augmented body, and, beyond, of an augmented subject into which the students project a part of themselves, enabling a subjective appropriation of the self via a mirror effect. Finally, it is important to recall that this device is used within an educational program. Any educational or learning process upsets references, as for an adolescent experiencing the changes that affect him. The role of peers is important in sustaining a sense of permanence of identity.

There is thus the possibility of a space of intersubjectivation enabling the construction of the link on three levels: the subjectivation of the absent subject represented by the avatar-robot; the subjectivation of the subject's peers; the internal links of the group.
