- carry out user requirement analysis and design of human-robot interaction in concrete scenarios
- design and develop social skills for human-robot interaction using a physical robotic platform
- use quantitative and qualitative approaches for evaluation and analysis of human-robot interaction data
- evaluate the impact that social robots may have on ethical values like privacy and autonomy that are important for users and society at large
Theories and methods of human-robot interaction; Paradigms of human-robot interaction; Interaction techniques; Programming robot behaviours for human-robot interaction; Human robot interaction design; User requirements analysis and prototyping for social robots; Evaluation of human-robot interaction; Applications of human-robot interaction; Robots and ethics.
