Exploiting human cooperation in human-centered robot navigation

Thibault Kruse, Alexandra Kirsch, E. Akin Sisbot, Rachid Alami
2010 19th International Symposium in Robot and Human Interactive Communication  
For robots that collaborate closely with humans, however, the situation is different in two respects: 1) the humans in the robot's environment are not randomly moving objects, but cognitive beings who  ...  can deliberately make way for a robot to pass and 2) the quality of a navigation plan depends less on quantitative efficiency criteria, but rather on the acceptance of humans.  ...  The contributions of this paper are • an extension of the human-aware navigation planner HANP to make plans more efficient in the presence of moving humans; • means for plan execution, which ensure safety  ...

The interpretation of uncertainty in ecological rationality

Anastasia Kozyreva, Ralph Hertwig
2019 Synthese  
cannot be satisfactorily explained in probabilistic and decision-theoretical terms.  ...  We also show how simple heuristics can deal with unmeasurable uncertainty and in what cases ignoring probabilities emerges as a proper response to uncertainty.  ...  We also thank Deb Ain for editing the manuscript.  ...

Risk Awareness in HTN Planning [article]

Ebaa Alnazer, Ilche Georgievski, Marco Aiello
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this work, we postulate that HTN planning can become risk aware by considering expected utility theory, a representative concept of decision theory that enables choosing actions considering a probability  ...  In particular, we introduce a general framework for HTN planning that allows modelling risk and uncertainty using a probability distribution of action costs upon which we define risk-aware HTN planning  ...  Another recent work solves navigation planning problems in marine environments, which have a high degree of uncertainty [14] .  ...

Using Quest3D to Develop VES: a Tool for Enhancing Electrical Safety and Design in the Built Environment [article]

Martin Barrett, J. M. Blackledge
2012 Computer Graphics and Visual Computing  
This paper presents a novel desktop virtual reality model titled Virtual Electrical Services (VES), developed to en-hance electrical safety and design in the built environment.  ...  The model developed using Quest3D has the potential to be used as an industry design tool or as an educational tool for third level students and represents a significant watershed in how electrical services  ...  In doing so, users can familiarise themselves with a potential work environment, technology, or a decision making process and immediately evaluate the consequences of tasks undertaken giving the user time  ...

A cognitive meta-analysis of design approaches to interruptions in intelligent environments

Antti Oulasvirta, Antti Salovaara
2004 Extended abstracts of the 2004 conference on Human factors and computing systems - CHI '04  
It appears that the approaches draw from different assumptions about human cognition. Some of the approaches contain inconsistencies. The cognitive analysis also inspires directions for future work.  ...  Minimizing interruptions to users is a crucial and acknowledged precondition for the adoption of new intelligent technologies such as ubiquitous and proactive computing.  ...  For example, in mobility, our visual attention is mostly reserved for orienting ourselves to others and navigating through the environment.  ...

The future of consumer decision making

Hanna Willman-Iivarinen
2017 European Journal of Futures Research  
Furthermore the choices are significantly influenced by the changes in decision making context for example time pressure and endless opportunities.  ...  Furthermore, it is important for policymakers who wish to be able to influence consumers' consumption habits in order to make them healthier, greener, more ethical or to favour domestic products.  ...  Next, we look at changes in the consumer's decision-making environment and ponder how these changes will affect decision-making in light of the correlation table.  ...

Indicators of Informal and Formal Decision-making about a Socioscientific Issue

Jenny M. Dauer, Michelle Lute, Olivia Straka
2016 International Journal of Education in Mathematics Science and Technology  
We propose two contrasting types of student decision-making based on social and cognitive psychology models of separate mental processes for problem solving.  ...  We explored indicators of students' formal decision-making in a socioscientific issue-focused general science post-secondary course that used a seven-step decision-making framework based in decision-science  ...  Classrooms can support formal decision-making by making students aware of common psychological traps that can bias decisions and by teaching specific skills for incorporating both personal values and technical  ...

A Decision Support Design Framework for Selecting a Robotic Interface [article]

Shreepriya Gonzalez Jimenez, Danilo Gallo, Ricardo Sosa, Eduardo B. Sandoval, Tommasso Colombino, Antonietta Grasso
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Our paper presents a decision support design framework for the a priori selection of robotic interface that was inductively formulated from our case study of designing a robot to collaborate with employees  ...  The themes of ownership of this process in interdisciplinary teams and its role in iteratively designing interfaces are discussed.  ...  Maintaining human situational awareness of the environment by keeping operators informed, trained, or "in-the-loop", [15] , has been widely explored [51] .  ...

Factors Affecting Interpretation of Diagnostic Images as a Decision Process:

Elzbieta T. Kazmierczak
2021 Visible Language  
The article translates the findings of the study into practical guidelines for applications in visual communication design and human-centered design research and practice.  ...  The study situated the factors affecting interpretation of images within the framework of the naturalistic/ ecological psychology (Brunswik, 1952, 1955) and the fast and frugal heuristic model of decision-making  ...  His ecological lens called for experiments that simulate natural world environments in which people make decisions.  ...
