Where to go: Interpreting natural directions using global inference

  title={Where to go: Interpreting natural directions using global inference},
  author={Yuan Wei and Emma Brunskill and Thomas Kollar and Nicholas Roy},
  journal={2009 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation},
An important component of human-robot interaction is that people need to be able to instruct robots to move to other locations using naturally given directions. When giving directions, people often make mistakes such as labelling errors (e.g., left vs. right) and errors of omission (skipping important decision points in a sequence). Furthermore, people often use multiple levels of granularity in specifying directions, referring to locations using single object landmarks, multiple landmarks in a… CONTINUE READING
