Mobile service robots have already been introduced in many office and public scenes and are expected to be used at home soon. As robotic and AI technology is developing rapidly, such robots can now achieve many actual tasks. We think human-robot collaboration is critical to improving the robots’ ability further. In this project, we pursue various human-robot collaboration scenarios and methods, such as dialog-enhanced human support robots and human-robot collaborative object search.
