How can humans and robots communicate better?

Mariofanna Milanova, Belinda Blevins Ghosal, Lawrence O'Gorman
2020 International Robotics & Automation Journal  
If robots can "read" gestures of a human, this will determine the success of a task, and learning will occur through trial-anderror or reinforcement learning.  ...  For example, when the human becomes more aware of whether his/her facial expressions and gestures match the intent; this expands information vertically into the Johari window pane for the human.  ...  Acknowledgements University of Arkansas at Little Rock, USA and Nokia Bell Labs, Murray Hill, New Jersey, USA.  ...

Special issue on user profiling and behavior adaptation for human-robot interaction

Silvia Rossi, Dongheui Lee
2017 Pattern Recognition Letters  
The recognition of the user's status and gestures is used in [9] , where the authors present a real-time approach for human-aware motion re-planning using a two-level hierarchical architecture.  ...  Indeed, for improved and natural human-robot cooperation, human users will learn how to interact with the robot but, at the same time, the robotic systems should adapt to the users.  ...

Detecting socially interacting groups using f-formation: A survey of taxonomy, methods, datasets, applications, challenges, and future research directions [article]

Hrishav Bakul Barua, Theint Haythi Mg, Pradip Pramanick, Chayan Sarkar
2021 arXiv   pre-print
To possess such a quality, first, a robot needs to determine the formation of the group and then determine a position for itself, which we humans do implicitly.  ...  In this article, we investigate one such social behavior for collocated robots. Imagine a group of people is interacting with each other and we want to join the group.  ...  No need for prior information about camera parameters/features of the scene is needed. The evaluation is performed on the basis of human experience study in real-life scenes using robots and humans.  ...
