Chapter 69 — Physical Human-Robot Interaction

Generation of human-care behaviors by human-interactive robot RI-MAN

This video shows the the realization of environmental interactive tasks, such as human-care tasks, by replaying the human motion repeatedly. A novel motion-generation approach is shown to integrate the cognitive information into the mimicking of human motions so as to realize the final complex task by the robot. Reference: M. Onishi, Z.W.
