  1. 1. Designing and Evaluating Human-Robot Communication Informing Design through Analysis of User Interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Anders Green; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human-Robot Interaction; Human-Robot Communication; Natural language user interfaces; Interaction Design; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the design and evaluation of human-robot communication for service robots that use natural language to interact with people.  The research is centred around three themes: design of human-robot communication; evaluation of miscommunication in human-robot communication; and the analysis of spatial influence as empiric phenomenon and design element.

  2. 2. Human-Robot Interaction and Mapping with a Service Robot Human Augmented Mapping

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Elin Anna Topp; KTH.; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robotics; Human-Robot Interaction; Cognitive modelling; Representation of space; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : An issue widely discussed in robotics research is the ageing society with its consequences for care-giving institutions and opportunities for developments in the area of service robots and robot companions. The general idea of using robotic systems in a personal or private context to support an independent way of living not only for the elderly but also for the physically impaired is pursued in different ways, ranging from socially oriented robotic pets to mobile assistants.

  3. 3. Modelling Engagement in Multi-Party Conversations Data-Driven Approaches to Understanding Human-Human Communication Patterns for Use in Human-Robot Interactions

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Catharine Oertel; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Människa-datorinteraktion; Human-computer Interaction;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to study human-human interaction in order to provide virtual agents and robots with the capability to engage into multi-party-conversations in a human-like-manner. The focus lies with the modelling of conversational dynamics and the appropriate realization of multi-modal feedback behaviour. READ MORE

  4. 4. Planning and Sequencing Through Multimodal Interaction for Robot Programming

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Author : Batu Akan; Mälardalens högskola.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; human robot interaction; industrial robots; planning; multimodal interaction; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Over the past few decades the use of industrial robots has increased the efficiency as well as the competitiveness of several sectors. Despite this fact, in many cases robot automation investments are considered to be technically challenging. In addition, for most small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) this process is associated with high costs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Initial steps toward human augmented mapping

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Elin Anna Topp; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robotics; Mapping; Human-Robot Interaction; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : With the progress in research and product development humans and robots get more and more close to each other and the idea of a personalised general service robot is not too far fetched. Crucial for such a service robot is the ability to navigate in its working environment. READ MORE
