Abstract
If robots are to successfully interact in a space shared with humans, they should learn the communicative signals humans use in face-to-face interactions. For example, a robot can consider human presence for grasping decisions using a representation of peripersonal space (Holthaus &Wachsmuth, 2012). During interaction, the eye gaze of the interlocutor plays an important role. Using mechanisms of joint attention, gaze can be used to ground objects during interaction and knowledge about the current goals of the interlocutor are revealed (Imai et al., 2003). Eye movements are also known to precede hand pointing or grasping (Prablanc et al., 1979), which could help robots to predict areas with human activities, e.g. for security reasons. We aim to study patterns of gaze and pointing in interaction space. The human participants’ task is to jointly plan routes on a floor plan. For analysis, it is necessary to find fixations on specific rooms and floors as well as on the interlocutor’s face or hands. Therefore, a model-based approach for automating this mapping was developed. This approach was evaluated using a highly accurate outside-in tracking system as baseline and a newly developed low-cost inside-out marker-based tracking system making use of the eye tracker’s scene camera.
