Body Gesture Recognition to Control a Social Robot [article]

Javier Laplaza, Joan Jaume Oliver, Ramón Romero, Alberto Sanfeliu, Anaís Garrell
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we propose a gesture based language to allow humans to interact with robots using their body in a natural way.  ...  We have created a new gesture detection model using neural networks and a custom dataset of humans performing a set of body gestures to train our network.  ...  This inspired us to seek a natural way for humans to communicate with robots using gestures.  ...

Robot expressionism through cartooning

James E. Young, Min Xin, Ehud Sharlin
2007 Proceeding of the ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction - HRI '07  
We present a new technique for human-robot interaction called robot expressionism through cartooning.  ...  We suggest that robots utilise cartoon-art techniques such as simplified and exaggerated facial expressions, stylised text, and icons for intuitive social interaction with humans.  ...  Cartoon art does not replace but rather can compliment gestures and body language expressions for rich interaction.  ...

Cognitive developmental robotics as a new paradigm for the design of humanoid robots

Minoru Asada, Karl F. MacDorman, Hiroshi Ishiguro, Yasuo Kuniyoshi
2001 Robotics and Autonomous Systems  
This paper proposes cognitive developmental robotics as a new principle for the design of humanoid robots.  ...  Furthermore, a methodological emphasis on humanoid robots in the design of artificial creatures holds promise because they have many degrees of freedom and sense modalities and, thus, must face the challenges  ...  Steels and Voget [27] implemented adaptive language games using robotic agents, and their approach seems closer to ours, but they assumed a protocol for robots to communicate.  ...

The Potential of Telepresence Robots for Intergroup Contact

Avner Peled, Teemu Leinonen, Béatrice Hasler
2020 Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Computer-Human Interaction Research and Applications  
We propose the use of telepresence robots as a medium for intergroup contact that aims at reducing prejudice between groups in conflict.  ...  We argue for robots as a midpoint between online communication and a faceto-face meeting, combining the flexibility of the virtual world and the depth of physical interactions.  ...  Nevertheless, telerobots have a physical presence; we use our bodies to interact with robots just as we would with a living being.  ...
