Intuitive Interaction with Robots - Technical Approaches and Challenges
In Formal Modeling and Verification of Cyber Physical Systems, Springer Heidelberg, pages 224-248, Sep/2015. ISBN: 978-3-658-09993-0.
A challenging goal in human-robot interaction research is
to build robots that are intuitive interaction partners for humans. Although
some research does focus on building robots which look and behave
exactly like a human, even simple toylike robots can be accepted as
adequate and intuitive interaction partners. However, for complex interaction
tasks, intelligent support, or cooperative behavior more advanced
and "on board" solutions have to be developed, that still support natural
interaction behavior between human and robot. This chapter will
discuss some relevant research in the field of human-robot interaction
which is fundamental for more complex but still intuitive interaction.
The focus is to convey the complexity of research that is required and
to point out different research areas which are relevant to achieve the
goal of developing robots that can be natural interaction partners for
inherent safety, compliant actuator, embedded system, veri cation, FPGA, model checking, interface, gesture, speech, embedded brain reading, physiological computing, imitation learning, skill learning, transfer learning, active learning
