Behavioral Implicit Communication for Human-Robot Interaction

  title={Behavioral Implicit Communication for Human-Robot Interaction},
  author={Francesca Giardini},
In Human-Robot Interaction domain many solutions have been proposed in order to achieve a smooth and natural communication and interaction: speech and other kinds of language, as well as others human typical ways of communication, such as gestures and facial expressions. We argue that a very necessary and effective way of improving HRI, at least from a theoretical point of view, could be purposive mutual understanding, i.e. practical behaviors aimed to achieve a pragmatic goal as well as a… 
A theoretical perspective on social agency
Key theoretical issues are discussed in a preliminary exploration of the concept of Social Agency, which tries to understand what Social Agency is and how it is created by, negotiated with, and attributed to artificial agents.


A Motivational System for Regulating Human-Robot Interaction
A motivational system for an autonomous robot which is designed to regulate human-robot interaction and implements drives, emotions, and facial expressions in order to engage in meaningful bi-directional social interactions with humans.
Learning and interacting in human-robot domains
This work presents an approach that allows a robot to learn task representations from its own experiences of interacting with a human, and describes a generalization of the framework to allow a robots to interact with humans in order to handle unexpected situations that can occur in its task execution.
Infant-like Social Interactions between a Robot and a Human Caregiver
This paper presents a mechanism for an autonomous robot to regulate the intensity of its social interactions with a human that enables the robot to react appropriately to both social stimuli and non-social stimuli while maintaining a suitable interaction intensity.

Recognizing and Interpreting Gestures on a Mobile Robot
This paper describes a real-time, three-dimensional gesture recognition system that resides on-board a mobile robot, capable of recognizing six distinct gestures made by an unadorned human in an unaltered environment, including the coarse model and the active vision approach.

Pragmatics of Human Communication: A Study of Interactional Patterns, Pathologies, and Paradoxes.
This book, which carries the imprint of the Mental Research Institute of Palo Alto, Calif, deals with human communication as an interaction process. The volume is divided into seven chapters and an
Getting Humanoids to Move and Imitate
A behavior-based approach to structuring and controlling complex robotic systems is described that uses imitation for interaction and learning and lets humanoid robots dance the Macarena, do aerobics and throw objects.
