Human-machine interaction in intelligent sensor network (Minotaurus) is a joint project between the Biomimetics and Intelligent Systems Group and the Center for Machine Vision Research, funded by the European Regional Development fund in 2010-2012.
However, the human-robot interaction has been an active research area at the BISG since early 2000'. Parallelly, the same research area, in particular the affective human-robot interaction, is being studied with the support of the Academy of Finland.
The goal of the currrent project is to create natural communication between the human and the machine. An intelligent sensor network will be implemented to support the operation of humans and robots. Practical applications for human-robot interaction will be implemented as well. In addition, the HRI system will be made easily extandable.
