This paper investigates issues of robot's personalization and long-term adaptation in human-robot interaction (HRI). It demonstrates the design and first technical implementation of a HRI showcase in the Robot House at University of Hertfordshire, UK. Here the central idea facilitating the long-term HRI is the creation of robotic companion, which provides… (More)
In this paper, we present an approach to monitor human activities such as entry, exit and break times of people in a workplace environment. The companion robot then learns the users' presence patterns over a period of time through memory generalisation and plans a suitable time for re charging itself causing less hindrance to human-robot interaction.
