Effects of Interruptibility-Aware Robot Behavior [article]

Siddhartha Banerjee, Andrew Silva, Karen Feigh, Sonia Chernova
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Our work introduces the first interruptibility-aware mobile robot system, and evaluates the effects of interruptibility-awareness on human task performance, robot task performance, and on human interpretation  ...  Our results show that our robot is effective at predicting interruptibility at high accuracy, allowing it to interrupt at more appropriate times.  ...  Third, we evaluate the effect that interruptibility-aware robot behavior has on the humans' perceived suitability of the robot's social behavior.  ...

Theory of Mind Based Assistive Communication in Complex Human Robot Cooperation [article]

Moritz C. Buehler, Jürgen Adamy, Thomas H. Weisswange
2021 arXiv   pre-print
The approach respects the costs of communication and balances interruptions better than other approaches.  ...  However simply communicating everything will annoy and distract humans since they might already be aware of and not all information is relevant in the current situation.  ...  Regarding relevance, the robot needs to estimate communication effects on human beliefs which in consequence may change human behavior (eq. (3) ).  ...
