8: Summary

Human-robot interaction is a growing field of research and application. The field includes many challenging problems and has the potential to produce solutions with positive social impact. Its interdisciplinary nature requires that researchers in the field understand their research within a broader context. In this survey we have tried to present a unified treatment of HRI-related problems, identify ...

7: Relation to Other Fields

Although we have framed HRI as a new field in this paper, HRI has strong ties to previous and ongoing work in telerobotics, intelligent vehicle systems, supervisory control, and aviation. In this section, we review many of the stronger ties to these fields. We begin with the most relevant: telerobotics and supervisory control. A. Telerobotics and Teleoperation Sheridan’s papers and books on telerobotics ...

6: Solution Themes, Scientific Approaches, and Challenge Problems

One measure of the maturity of a research field is the emergence of a series of accepted practices and challenge problems that focus the attention of the field. Equally important is the identification of solution themes that cross applications. In this section, we survey several practices, challenge problems, and solution themes. A. Accepted Practices There are a number of accepted practices that are ...

5: Problem Domains in HRI

We have already mentioned several of the problem domains and application areas in modern HRI. In this section, we elaborate on many of these problem domains to present a survey of the kinds of problems encountered in HRI. Importantly, many of these problems have broad social impact; thus, much work in HRI uses science and engineering to respond to needs in society. Scholtz provided a taxonomy of roles ...

4: What Defines an HRI Problem?

The HRI problem is to understand and shape the interactions between one or more humans and one or more robots. Interactions between humans and robots are inherently present in all of robotics, even for so called autonomous robots – after all, robots are still used by, and are doing work, for humans. As a result, evaluating the capabilities of humans and robots, and designing the technologies and ...

3: Emergence of HRI as a Field

Although there is much work that can be considered HRI, the multi-disciplinary field started to emerge in the mid 1990s and early years of 2000. Key numerous events occurred in this time frame, with the main catalyst being a multi-disciplinary approach; researchers from robotics, cognitive science, human factors, natural language, psychology, and human-computer interaction started to come together ...

2: Early History of Robotics and Human-Machine-Interaction

In this section, we briefly survey events and work that have made modern HRI possible. Clearly, the development of robots was the essential first step. Although robot technology was primarily developed in the mid and late 20th century, it is important to note that the notion of robot-like behavior and its implications for humans have been around for centuries in religion, mythology, philosophy, and ...

1: Introduction

Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) is a field of study dedicated to understanding, designing, and evaluating robotic systems for use by or with humans. Interaction, by definition, requires communication between robots and humans. Communication between a human and a robot may take several forms, but these forms are largely influenced by whether the human and the robot are in close proximity to each other ...

Human-Robot Interaction: A historical perspective and current research trends

Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) has recently received considerable attention in the academic community, in labs, in technology companies, and through the media. Because of this attention, it is desirable to present a survey of HRI to serve as a tutorial to people outside the field and to promote discussion of a unified vision of HRI within the field. The goal of this review is to present a unified treatment ...
