  1. 1. Bringing the avatar to life : Studies and developments in facial communication for virtual agents and robots

    Author : Samer Al Moubayed; Jonas Beskow; Stefan Kopp; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Avatar; Speech Communication; Facial animation; Nonverbal; Social; Robot; Human-like; Face-to-face; Prosody; Pitch; Prominence; Furhat; Gaze; Head-pose; Dialogue; Interaction; Multimodal; Multiparty; SRA - ICT; SRA - Informations- och kommunikationsteknik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis comes in pursuit of the ultimate goal of building spoken and embodied human-like interfaces that are able to interact with humans under human terms. Such interfaces need to employ the subtle, rich and multidimensional signals of communicative and social value that complement the stream of words – signals humans typically use when interacting with each other.

  2. 2. Applications of the Virtual Holonomic Constraints Approach : Analysis of Human Motor Patterns and Passive Walking Gaits

    Author : Uwe Mettin; Anton Shiriaev; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Motion Planning; Humanoid Robots; Virtual Holonomic Constraints; Underactuated Mechanical Systems; Mechanical Springs; Automatic control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : In the field of robotics there is a great interest in developing strategies and algorithms to reproduce human-like behavior. One can think of human-like machines that may replace humans in hazardous working areas, perform enduring assembly tasks, serve the elderly and handicapped, etc. READ MORE

  3. 3. Eyes on multimodal interaction

    Author : Pernilla Qvarfordt; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Advances in technology are making it possible for users to interact with computers by various modalities, often through speech and gesture. Such multimodal interaction is attractive because it mimics the patterns and skills in natural human-human communication. To date, research in this area has primarily focused on giving commands to computers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Non-invasive ultrasound-based cardiovascular imaging in mouse models of atherosclerosis

    Author : Julia Grönros; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : atherosclerosis; ultrasound-based imaging; cardiovascular disease; coronary artery; mouse; color Doppler echocardiography; ultrasound biomicroscopy; statin;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is a chronic multi-factorial vascular disease. It generally requires large clinical settings and over many years to study the disease progression in man. Genetically modified mouse models of atherosclerosis have dramatically increased research feasibility within this area. READ MORE

  5. 5. Compliance Control of Robot Manipulator for Safe Physical Human Robot Interaction

    Author : Muhammad Rehan Ahmed; Ivan Kalaykov; Kystof Kozlowksi; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Physical human robot interaction; collision safety; variable stiffness actuators; compliance control; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Automatic control; Reglerteknik; Reglerteknik; Automatic Control;

    Abstract : Inspiration from biological systems suggests that robots should demonstrate same level of capabilities that are embedded in biological systems in performing safe and successful interaction with the humans. The major challenge in physical human robot interaction tasks in anthropic environment is the safe sharing of robot work space such that robot will not cause harm or injury to the human under any operating condition.
