Humavips (2010-2013)

The objective of HUMAVIPS (Humanoids with auditory and visual abilities in populated spaces) has been to endow humanoid robots with audiovisual (AV) abilities: exploration, recognition, and interaction, such that they exhibit adequate behavior when dealing with a group of people. Research has emphasized the role played by multimodal perception within principled models of human-robot interaction and of humanoid behavior. The Applied Informatics Group has contributed to this project with software architecture development and interaction modeling.
