“Towards individual robotics design: Using human motion for enhanced Human-Robot Interaction experience”

Robots of various forms have already started to enter our environment and we are interacting with them. In a very short time many more will joint this fleet and human-robot interaction in public and private spaces are likely to interact with us. We believe that a successful interaction with robots builds up from complex psycho-social concepts but one important is to feel familiar with this unusual robotic partner even in the very first interaction. Our research focuses in highlighting this feeling through non-verbal communication using human motion data in order to create robots which design and whole body motions design support familiarity in first encounter.
