Modeling human trust decisions is a notoriously difficult problem. We focus on decisions where a victim must decide whether to trust a robot in an emergency situation and outline the necessary inputs to model this decision. These inputs can each be represented as an outcome matrix and combined using a weighted sum. Calibrating these weights can be accomplished through the use of internet surveys.
