In this work we present an audiovisual approach to the recognition of spontaneous interest in human conversations. For a most robust estimate, information from four sources is combined by a synergistic and individual failure tolerant fusion. Firstly, speech is analyzed with respect to acoustic properties based on a high-dimensional prosodic, articulatory,(More)
This paper presents a sensory-motor coordination scheme for a robot hand-arm-head system that provides the robot with the capability to reach an object while pre-shaping the fingers to the required grasp configuration and while predicting the tactile image that will be perceived after grasping. A model for sensory-motor coordination derived from studies in(More)
In this article we describe current and future technologies for ensuring the safety of the operators maneuvering a Skill-Assist working in an automobile final assembly process. It proposes a method that allows a Skill-Assist to detect operation slip from a sequence of an operator's hand motion trajectory data represented using hidden Markov models (HMM).(More)
