Title: New Frontiers in Human–Robot Interaction
Edited By: Kerstin Dautenhahn
Joe Saunders
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/ais.2
Series Title: Advances in Interaction Studies 2
Description:

Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) considers how people can interact with robots in
order to enable robots to best interact with people. HRI presents many
challenges with solutions requiring a unique combination of skills from many
fields, including computer science, artificial intelligence, social sciences,
ethology and engineering. We have specifically aimed this work to appeal to
such a multi-disciplinary audience. This volume presents new and exciting
material from HRI researchers who discuss research at the frontiers of HRI. The
chapters address the human aspects of interaction, such as how a robot may
understand, provide feedback and act as a social being in interaction with a
human, to experimental studies and field implementations of human–robot
collaboration ranging from joint action, robots practically and safely helping
people in real world situations, robots helping people via rehabilitation and robots
acquiring concepts from communication. This volume reflects current trends in
this exciting research field.
