Endowing robots with social skills
Humanoids expected to collaborate with people should be able to interact with them in the most natural way. This involves significant perceptual, communication, and motor processes, operating in a coordinated fashion. The objective of HUMAVIPS is to endow humanoid robots with audiovisual abilities: exploration, recognition, and interaction, such that they exhibit adequate behavior when dealing with a group of people. Proposed research and technological developments will emphasize the role played by multimodal perception within principled models of human-robot interaction and of humanoid behavior. An open-source software platform will be developed to foster dissemination and to ensure exploitation beyond the lifetime of the project.
