| ||Scope of the Workshop |
The emerging field of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) represents an interdisciplinary effort that addresses the need to integrate social informatics, human factors, cognitive science and usability concepts into the design and development of a social robot. One of the main challenges of a social robot is to perceive the world as humans do. Besides, social robot must proficiently interpret human activity and behaviour.
The vision system of a social robot is the responsible of solve tasks like identifying faces, measuring head and hands poses, capturing human motion, recognizing gestures and reading facial expressions to emulate human social perception.The aim of this workshop is providing an opportunity for researchers to discuss the state-of-art, to share their new ideas, original results and practical experiences.
