When my robot smiles at me: Enabling human-robot rapport via real-time head gesture mimicry

Laurel D. Riek, Philip C. Paul, Peter Robinson
2009 Journal on Multimodal User Interfaces  
The robot operated in one of three ways: full head gesture mimicking, partial head gesture mimicking (nodding), and non-mimicking (blinking).  ...  We hypothesized that participants in the full head gesture condition will rate their interaction the most positively, followed by the partial and non-mimicking conditions.  ...  Out of the box the robot can operate fully autonomously or be tele-operated via remote control.  ...

Design and Evaluation of a Telepresence Vision System for Manipulation Tasks

Koji Shiratsuchi, Kohei Kawata, Emmanuel Vander Poorten, Yasuyoshi Yokokohji
2007 Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS), Proceedings of the IEEE International Conference on  
The proposed vision system design framework suggests to break away from simply (and often blindly) mimicking human appearance.  ...  The result is a 4DOF camera system, containing two rotational joints (pan-tilt) and two prismatic joints (horizontal plane.)  ...  Actually, it turned out that this blind mimicking of the human head led to insufficient quality of the obtained images.  ...
