Robots are becoming more and more integrated into our everyday lives. In this sense, it is important to make human-machine interaction as natural as possible.
Visual Voice Activity Detection (VVAD) is an important cognitive function that allows people to see if the interaction partner is speaking. Robotic systems repeatedly show deficits in this aspect, which means that interaction with the robotic system is unnatural and not very fluid. In the thesis, a VVAD system is to be developed on the basis of the VVAD-LRS3 data set.
