Socially interactive robots acting in public environments


Robots' use in direct contact with humans in public environments, respecting social rules, represents a challenge for robotics, particularly for the area of human-robot interaction, whose main objective is to increase robots' acceptability by people. Research results with these characteristics provide robots' use increasingly acceptable in environments such as homes, industries, or public buildings such as hospitals and offices. The Brazilian context provides the mastery of technologies for proactive human-robot interaction that is the base for the still-nascent 5.0 industry. In this context, this research project, which has the participation of Brazilian and international partners, addresses the ability to detect complex emotions based on multimodal information and robotic navigation with social awareness in guide and reception tasks in public spaces, with studies carried out using datasets and experiments. Among the proposed contributions is developing approaches including techniques, evaluation, and datasets for detecting complex emotions from images and an unified framework for use in socially acceptable navigation. Case studies of the system will occur at the CTI Renato Archer facilities, where a robot will act as a receptionist. The robot will receive and guide leading visitors to meeting points with the person being visited, using information about the person's location and emotion to promote more acceptable interactions for people who will be received or guided.
