Social Robots

In order to work well together, human robot communication needs to be intuitive. Communication has to be human-central and the machine should adapt its communication to the human. Humans communicate verbally, but also non-verbally using gestures and emotions, especially in noisy environments like factory floors. Also robots have to be able to interpret human communication, express humanlike communication cues and act socially.
Social robots are robots that can communicate in a social way with speech, emotions and gestures.
