About the course
Robots are now developed to provide humans with not only physical but also social support. Examples include robots that act as assistants and companions for the elderly at home, as educational tutors, as therapeutic tools for children with autism, and as instructors in industrial settings. As robots are deployed more and more in our daily lives, it becomes crucial to study how to design and develop new technologies for physical robots interacting with humans.
This course will provide an overview of the science and technology of human-robot interaction; theories and methods for the design and evaluation of robots interacting with human users; fundamentals of verbal and non-verbal communication for situated interaction with physical robots.
