Human – Robot Tactile Interaction

  title={Human – Robot Tactile Interaction},
  author={Thomas W{\"o}sch and Wendelin Feiten},
In the field of service robotics, robots serve and assist human beings. It is natural for humans to directly interact with the robot via tactile interfaces. This paper introduces several kinds of tactile interactions between a user and the robot as well as interactions of the robot with the environment. All interactions are implemented in a single paradigm: Forces measured from tactile sensors result in motion vectors at the contact points. The motion vectors from different sensors are… 

A Method of Combination of Language Understanding with Touch-Based Communication Robots

A response algorithm that can combine conversational information and touch information from humans and from the experiment for impressions of robot responses with 11 subjects, it turns out that the proposed method with combination of DBC and TBC is improved.



Tactile gestures for human/robot interaction

    Proceedings 1995 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems. Human Robot Interaction and Cooperative Robots
  • 1995
An application of distributed perception for inferring a user's intentions by observing tactile gestures based on the expressiveness of nonverbal communication is presented.

Spontaneous, short-term interaction with mobile robots

The approach to spontaneous short-term interaction is described: a robot designed to be a believable social agent, implemented using a mobile robot with a motorized face as focal point for interaction, an architecture that suggests the robot has moods, and a method for learning how to interact with people.

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.

A modularized sensitive skin for motion planning in uncertain environments

The system developed at the UW-Madison Robotics Lab and discussed here presents a system that can be easily reconfigured for a variety of applications that is accomplished via modularized sensitive skin patches that are connected in various ways, and a hierarchical control architecture that is easily modified for various system configurations.

Real-Time Obstacle Avoidance for Manipulators and Mobile Robots

  • Computer Science
    Proceedings. 1985 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation
  • 1985
This paper reformulated the manipulator con trol problem as direct control of manipulator motion in operational space—the space in which the task is originally described—rather than as control of the task's corresponding joint space motion obtained only after geometric and geometric transformation.

A full-body tactile sensor suit using electrically conductive fabric and strings

The design and implementation of a tactile sensor system, sensor suit, that covers the entire body of a robot and its application with a full-body humanoid are presented.

Real-time collision avoidance for a redundant manipulator in an unstructured environment

Robot-to-environment collisions, robot self-collisions and robot constraints such as joint limit and singularity avoidance can be achieved using this method.

A capacitance-based proximity sensor for whole arm obstacle avoidance

  • J. NovakJ. Feddema
  • Computer Science
    Proceedings 1992 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation
  • 1992
The authors address the issue of collision avoidance in unknown or partially modeled environments using a capacitative sensor system which can detect obstacles up to 400 mm away and enable the robot arm to avoid a conductive post and a concrete block.

Randomized preprocessing of configuration space for path planning: articulated robots

  • L. KavrakiJ. Latombe
  • Computer Science
    Proceedings of IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS'94)
  • 1994
This paper describes the application of a recent approach to path planning for robots with many degrees of freedom (DOF) to articulated robots moving in two or three dimensional static environments and shows that after paying the preprocessing cost, planning is extremely fast for many difficult examples involving 7-DOF and 12- DOF robots.
