An Analysis of Perceptual Cues in Robot Group Selection Tasks

This talk was given on 20th April 2016 by Alessandra Rossi.

The aim of the proposed investigation is to provide the users with the capability of creating robot teams “on–the–fly” using grouping strategies expressed through speech.

Our working hypothesis is that people are inclined to assemble objects into macro-entities, or groups, according to perceptual principles. We observed the real linguistic utterances used by individuals in a testing environment, showing that the type of robots and their mutual arrangements can affect both the choice of elements to form a team, and the way such choice is made. Moreover, we provide an initial insight for the capabilities needed by a robot for reasoning about its membership in a team.
