C1 - Interaction Space

Depiction of the Interaction Space

The project C1 investigates spatial alignment and complementary alignment of gestures between a human and an artificial agent who interact in a shared space. The mental representation of this interaction space facilitates the coordination of parallel actions. In the artificial intelligence part the consequences of spatial perspective taking are explored in a virtual setup where both partners jointly move and manipulate virtual objects. The cognitive robotics part focuses on perception and gesture control issues in a physical setup where a human and a robotic receptionist operate on the same map between them.
