This paper presents a series of 4 single subject experiments aimed to investigate if children with autism show more social engagement when interacting with the Nao robot, compared to a human partner in a motor imitation task. The Nao robot imitates gross arm movements of the child in real-time. Different behavioral criteria (i.e., eye gaze, gaze shifting,(More)
Robots are more and more present in our daily life; they have to move into human-centered environments, to interact with humans, and to obey some social rules so as to produce an appropriate social behavior in accordance with human's profile (i.e., personality, state of mood, and preferences). Recent researches discussed the effect of personality traits on(More)
Oxygen-18 ((18)0) and deuterium isotopes were used to estimate the evaporation from the Aswan High Dam Lake and to investigate the inter-relation between the lake water and adjacent groundwater.According to stable isotopic analysis of samples taken in 1988 and 1989, the lake can be divided into two sections. In the first section extending between Abu Simbel(More)
In human-robot interaction, a social intelligent robot should be capable of understanding the emotional internal state of the interacting human so as to behave in a proper manner. The main problem towards this approach is that human internal states can't be totally trained on, so the robot should be able to learn and classify emotional states online. This(More)
In human-robot interaction, gender and internal state detection play an important role in making the robot reacting in an appropriate manner. This research focuses on the important features to extract from a voice signal in order to construct successful gender and internal state detection systems, and shows the benefits of combining both systems together on(More)
In Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) scenarios, an intelligent robot should be able to synthesize an appropriate behavior adapted to human profile (i.e., personality). Recent research studies discussed the effect of personality traits on human verbal and nonverbal behaviors. The dynamic characteristics of the generated gestures and postures during the nonverbal(More)
In human-human interaction, three modalities of communication (i.e., verbal, nonverbal, and paraverbal) are naturally coordinated so as to enhance the meaning of the conveyed message. In this paper, we try to create a similar coordination between these modalities of communication in order to make the robot behave as naturally as possible. The proposed(More)
