In order to enable the widespread use of robots in home and office environments, systems with natural interaction capabilities have to be developed. A prerequisite for natural interaction is the robot's ability to automatically recognize when and how long a person's attention is directed towards it for communication. As in open environments several persons(More)
— The development of robot companions with natural human-robot interaction (HRI) capabilities is a challenging task as it requires incorporating various functionalities. Consequently, a flexible infrastructure for controlling module operation and data exchange between modules is proposed, taking into account insights from software system integration. This(More)
Research on computer vision systems for driver assistance resulted in a variety of isolated approaches mainly performing very specialized tasks like, e. g., lane keeping or traffic sign detection. However, for a full understanding of generic traffic situations, integrated and flexible approaches are needed. We here present a highly integrated vision(More)
— One ambitious goal in current robotics research is to build robots that can interact with humans in an intuitive way and can do so outside the lab in real world situations and environments such as private homes or public places. Toy robots like, e.g., Sony's AIBO are already being sold successfully for entertainment purposes, but they usually lack(More)
