Paola Ardón, Èric Pairet, Katrin S. Lohan, Subramanian Ramamoorthy, Ronald P. A. Petrick
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this survey, we review and find common ground amongst different strategies that use the concept of affordances within robotic tasks, and build on these methods to provide guidance for including affordances  ...  To this end, we outline common design choices for building representations of affordance relations, and their implications on the generalisation capabilities of an agent when facing previously unseen scenarios  ...  Another option is for the agent to have a prior set of logical rules that determines a round object in motion on a surface rolls, so it builds the affordance relation model based on heuristics [Baleia  ...

Paola Ardón, Èric Pairet, Katrin S. Lohan, Subramanian Ramamoorthy, Ron P. A. Petrick
2021 Proceedings of the Thirtieth International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence   unpublished
In this survey, we review and find common ground amongst different strategies that use the concept of affordances within robotic tasks, and build on these methods to provide guidance for including affordances  ...  To this end, we outline common design choices for building representations of affordance relations, and their implications on the generalisation capabilities of an agent when facing previously unseen scenarios  ...  We identify that, as in the formalisms, the literature on affordances for artificial agents follows the same three elements to build the affordance relation.  ...

Object Handovers: a Review for Robotics [article]

Valerio Ortenzi, Akansel Cosgun, Tommaso Pardi, Wesley Chan, Elizabeth Croft, Dana Kulic
2022 arXiv   pre-print
This article surveys the literature on human-robot object handovers. A handover is a collaborative joint action where an agent, the giver, gives an object to another agent, the receiver.  ...  We compare the behaviours displayed during human-to-human handovers to the state of the art of robotic assistants, and identify the major areas of improvement for robotic assistants to reach performance  ...  The authors want to thank: Peter Corke for his invaluable feedback; Alessandro De Luca for the good advice about safety in physical human-robot interaction; Marco Controzzi for the discussion on the role  ...

Explainable Agents Through Social Cues: A Review [article]

Sebastian Wallkotter, Silvia Tulli, Ginevra Castellano, Ana Paiva, Mohamed Chetouani
2021 arXiv   pre-print
One reason for this high variance in terminology is the unique array of social cues that embodied agents can access in contrast to that accessed by non-embodied agents.  ...  The issue of how to make embodied agents explainable has experienced a surge of interest over the last three years, and, there are many terms that refer to this concept, e.g., transparency or legibility  ...  One example is the ability to point to important objects in a scene -assuming the agent has an extremity that affords pointing.  ...

Active Haptic Perception in Robots: A Review

Lucia Seminara, Paolo Gastaldo, Simon J. Watt, Kenneth F. Valyear, Fernando Zuher, Fulvio Mastrogiovanni
2019 Frontiers in Neurorobotics  
In the past few years a new scenario for robot-based applications has emerged.

Francesca Bianco, Dimitri Ognibene
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Furthermore, while a ToM for false-belief understanding and tracking is often built in social robotic architectures, a ToM for proactivity, active perception and learning is less common.  ...  Great advancements have been achieved in the field of robotics, however, main challenges remain, including building robots with an adaptive Theory of Mind (ToM).  ...  A ToM for (active) perception Associating intentions and mental states to agents' behavior may encourage the observer to actively search for cues, such as unnoticed affordances, to acquire a better understanding  ...
