Deliberative Communication Planning
The long-lasting idea of human-robot collaboration has thrived remarkably in the last decade and cobots are being employed increasingly to provide diversified services which has led to more and more human-robot co-working environments. In practice, however, there are pervasive situations in which inherent constraints of the co-working environment jeopardize the safety and task achievability of the scenario. In this project, we aim to address this problem in various settings by exploring deeper modalities of the human-robot interactions, such as implicit and explicit communication.
As the first step, we explored the explained problem in social navigation settings:
