Human-Robot Interaction and Coordination
Co-Chairs Cecilia Laschi , Cynthia Breazeal,
Yasushi Nakauchi
  • Recent Technical Developments in HRI
  • Computational models of core human
    socio-cognitive skills (such as perspective
    taking and shared attention) have been
    successfully demonstrated to improve the quality
    of human-robot teamwork and interaction
  • HRI frameworks have successfully been applied to
    traditional machine learning methods to enable
    humanoid and mobile robots to learn from natural
    human interactions via imitation, demonstration,
    and tutelage.
  • The HRI community has embarked on developing
    evaluation metrics that embrace
    multi-disciplinary perspectives such as human
    factors, psychology, robotics, etc. for diverse
    areas of HRI such as Urban Search and Rescue,
    Social Robotics, H-R teams for Space Exploration,
    and more.

Some examples of recent technical developments
in robotics technologies applied to ITSfor
quality of life, efficiency, mobility, safety,
challenge.
  • The DARPA Grand Challenge
  • The first race ever that saw 5 autonomous
    vehicles reach the finish line after 130 miles
    of desert, rough terrain, and extreme
    conditions.
  • The first time that unmanned vehicles succeed
    in this extremely complex task.

Cybercars a new approach for sustainable
mobility Emerging as an alternative to the
private passenger car, cybercars try to
offer the same flexibility and much less
nuisances based on fully automated electrical
vehicles with on-demand and door-to-door
capability. Fleets of such vehicles are being
deployed in several worldwide cities and are
already operational in specific environments
such as shuttle services for
passenger transportation.
Major breakthrough in automobile Combination of
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Lane
Keep Assist System (LKAS).

41
New Field of Interest Statement
The Society strives to advance innovation,
education, and fundamental and applied research
in Robotics and Automation. Robotics focuses on
systems incorporating sensors and actuators that
operate autonomously or semi-autonomously in
cooperation with humans. Robotics research
emphasizes intelligence and adaptability to cope
with unstructured environments. Automation
research emphasizes efficiency, productivity,
quality, and reliability, focusing on systems
that operate autonomously, often in structured
environments over extended periods, and on the
explicit structuring of such environments.
