The Liezi described an automaton.
Origins[ edit ] Human—robot interaction has been a topic of both science fiction and academic speculation even before any robots existed. Because HRI depends on a knowledge of sometimes natural human communicationmany aspects of HRI are continuations of human communications topics that are much older than robotics per se.
A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
The closer the human and the robot get and the more intricate the relationship becomes, the more the risk of a human being injured rises. Nowadays in advanced societies, manufacturers employing robots solve this issue by not letting humans and robots share the workspace at any time.
This is achieved by defining safe zones using lidar sensors or physical cages. Thus the presence of humans is completely forbidden in the robot workspace while it is working. With the advances of artificial intelligence, the autonomous robots could eventually have more proactive behaviors, planning their motion in complex unknown environments.
These new capabilities keep safety as the primary issue and efficiency as secondary. To allow this new generation of robot, research is being conducted on human detection, motion planning, scene reconstruction, intelligent behavior through task planning and compliant behavior using force control impedance or admittance control schemes.
Research ranges from how humans work with remote, tele-operated unmanned vehicles to peer-to-peer collaboration with anthropomorphic robots.
Many in the field of HRI study how humans collaborate and interact and use those studies to motivate how robots should interact with humans. The goal of friendly human—robot interactions[ edit ] Kismet can produce a range of facial expressions.
Robots are artificial agents with capacities of perception and action in the physical world often referred by researchers as workspace. Their use has been generalized in factories but nowadays they tend to be found in the most technologically advanced societies in such critical domains as search and rescue, military battle, mine and bomb detection, scientific exploration, law enforcement, entertainment and hospital care.
These new domains of applications imply a closer interaction with the user. The concept of closeness is to be taken in its full meaning, robots and humans share the workspace but also share goals in terms of task achievement.
This close interaction needs new theoretical models, on one hand for the robotics scientists who work to improve the robots utility and on the other hand to evaluate the risks and benefits of this new "friend" for our modern society. With the advance in AIthe research is focusing on one part towards the safest physical interaction but also on a socially correct interaction, dependent on cultural criteria.
The goal is to build an intuitive, and easy communication with the robot through speech, gestures, and facial expressions. But every day environments such as homes have much more complex social rules than those implied by factories or even military environments.
Thus, the robot needs perceiving and understanding capacities to build dynamic models of its surroundings. It needs to categorize objects, recognize and locate humans and further their emotions.Jul 21, · Stay updated on the latest robot news and the evolution of robotic technology.
