An intent-based approach for creating assistive robots' control systems [article]

Tomasz Winiarski, Wojciech Dudek, Maciej Stefańczyk, Łukasz Zieliński, Daniel Giełdowski, Dawid Seredyński
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In the article an approach is presented for creating control systems for assistive robots, which reacts to users' intents delivered by voice commands, buttons, or an operator console.  ...  The exemplary experiments performed on the platform illustrate the motivation for diversification of human-machine interfaces in assistive robots.  ...  Next, the intent is sent to robot/ath via robot/atr . In the second case, a button is triggered, and smart_home/atr sends to robot/ath an intent related to the button.  ...
