We propose a general architecture for action (mimicking) and program (gesture) level visual imitation. Action-level imitation involves two modules. The viewpoint transformation (VPT) performs a "rotation" to align the demonstrator's body to that of the learner. The visuo-motor map (VMM) maps this visual information to motor data. For program-level (gesture) imitation, there is an additional module that allows the system to recognize and generate its own interpretation of observed gestures to… CONTINUE READING
