Chapter 72 — Social Robotics

A robot that provides a direction based on the model of the environment

The video shows a scene of direction-giving interaction. The robot communicates the way to reach the destination with pointing in the direction to go. This interaction is supported with its capability to understand the environment. That is, the robot possesses the model of the environment, like a geographical map, topology, and landmarks from a first-person perspective, the so called route-perspective model.
