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

    Author : Anders Green; Kerstin Severinson Eklundh; Henrik Christensen; Candice Sidner; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human-Robot Interaction; Human-Robot Communication; Natural language user interfaces; Interaction Design; Computer science; 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 for Semi-Autonomous Assistive Robots : Empirical Studies and an Interaction Concept for Supporting Elderly People at Home

    Author : Marcus Mast; Arne Jönsson; Michael Burmester; Jonas Lundberg; Tony Belpaeme; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Semi-autonomous assistive robots; human-robot interaction; user interface design; teleoperation; telemanipulation; elderly people; global environment maps; stereoscopy; Semi-autonoma robotar; människa-robotinteraktion; gränssnittsdesign; distansstyrning; distansmanipulation; äldre; globala omgivningskartor; stereoskopisk;

    Abstract : The research addresses current shortcomings of autonomous service robots operating in domestic environments by considering the concept of a semi-autonomous robot that would be supported by human remote operators whenever the robot cannot handle a task autonomously. The main research objective was to investigate how to design the human-robot interaction for a robotic system to assist elderly people with physical tasks at home according to this conceptual idea.

  3. 3. Toward human-robot collaboration

    Author : Kristian T. Simsarian; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Recently robots have been launched as tour-guides in museums, and as lawnmowers, in-home vacuum cleaners, and remotely operated machines in so-called distant, dangerous and dirty applications. While the methods to endow robots with a degree of autonomy have been a strong research focus, the methods for human-machine control have not been given as much attention. READ MORE

  4. 4. Force-based control for human-robot cooperative object manipulation

    Author : Ramin Jaberzadeh Ansari; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; human-robot interaction control; physical human-robot collaboration; kinesthetic perception; system identification;

    Abstract : In Physical Human-Robot Interaction (PHRI), humans and robots share the workspace and physically interact and collaborate to perform a common task. However, robots do not have human levels of intelligence or the capacity to adapt in performing collaborative tasks. READ MORE

  5. 5. Human-Robot Interaction and Mapping with a Service Robot : Human Augmented Mapping

    Author : Elin Anna Topp; Henrik I. Christensen; Benjamin J. Kuipers; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Robotics; Human-Robot Interaction; Cognitive modelling; Representation of space; Computer science; 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.
