MCI-WS13: Interacting with Robots and Virtual Agents? Robotic Systems in Situated Action and Social Encounters
Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V.
An autonomous robot system was equipped with basic means to monitor the users’ success/failure in following a robot’s verbal-gestural deictic reference to an object and – in case of problems – to provide additional help, i.e. to suggest a ‘repair’ action. A real-world field trial with the robot acting as museum guide constitutes the basis for analysis of the users’ reactions. This example is used to explore HRI as a tool to investigate multimodal interaction.
