    This study compared the responses of human participants studying motor interference and motor coordination when they were interacting with three different types of visual stimuli: a humanoid robot, a pendulum, and a virtual moving dot. Participants' responses indicated that participants' beliefs about the engagement of the robot affected the elicitation of the motor interference effects. Together ... View full abstract»

    Building intelligent systems with human level competence is the ultimate grand challenge for science and technology in general, and especially for cognitive developmental robotics. This paper proposes a new approach to the design of cognitive skills in a robot able to interact with, and communicate about, the surrounding physical world and manipulate objects in an adaptive manner. The work is base... View full abstract»

    Human-robot interaction is a key issue in order to build robots for everyone. The difficulty for people to understand how robots work and how they must be controlled will be one of the mains limit for broad robotics. In this paper, we study a new way of interacting with robots without needing to understand how robots work or to give them explicit instructions. This work is based on psychological d...

  • Implicit Sensorimotor Mapping of the Peripersonal Space by Gazing and Reaching

    Primates often perform coordinated eye and arm movements, contextually fixating and reaching towards nearby objects. This combination of looking and reaching to the same target is used by infants to establish an implicit visuomotor representation of the peripersonal space, useful for both oculomotor and arm motor control. In this work, taking inspiration from such behavior and from primate visuomo... View full abstract»

    Cognitive systems research aims to understand how cognitive abilities can be created in artificial systems. One key issue is the architecture of the system. It organizes the interplay between the different system elements and thus, determines the principle limits for the performance of the system. In this contribution, we focus on important properties of hierarchical cognitive systems. Therefore, ... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses an utterance system based on the associative memory of partner robots developed through interaction with people. Human interaction based on gestures is quite important to the expression of natural communication, and the meaning of gestures can be understood through intentional interactions with a human. We therefore propose a method for associative learning based on intentiona... View full abstract»

  • Dynamic Neural Fields as Building Blocks of a Cortex-Inspired Architecture for Robotic Scene Representation

    Based on the concepts of dynamic field theory (DFT), we present an architecture that autonomously generates scene representations by controlling gaze and attention, creating visual objects in the foreground, tracking objects, reading them into working memory, and taking into account their visibility. At the core of this architecture are three-dimensional dynamic neural fields (DNFs) that link feat... View full abstract»

    The goal of the cognitive robotics research is to design robots with human-like cognition (albeit reduced complexity) in perception, reasoning, action planning, and decision making. Such a venture of cognitive robotics has developed robots with redundant number of sensors and actuators in order to perceive the world and act up on it in a human-like fashion. A major challenge to deal with these rob... View full abstract»
