How to Make Robot a Robust and Interactive Communicator
One of the key points to make robot a robust and interactive communicator is enabling robot to recognize user’s attention behavior and transit among communication situations, so that human and robot can be involved into shared activity. Four communication situations are defined to describe typical situations of interactive human-robot communication. The robot can not only open and close communication, but also adapt to user’s behavior passively or actively. We proposed a two-layered architecture of robot system. Implementation of listener robot partly proved effectiveness of the proposal approach.
