Martin Cooney and a team of social robotics researchers at Halmstad University are using the Baxter and Ridgeback omnidirectional platform to make improvements in people’s everyday lives. The project is called Action and Intention Recognition in Human Interaction with Autonomous Systems, or more simply SIDUS AIR. The purpose of the project is to contribute to the design of capabilities facilitating mutual recognition of actions and intentions between humans and autonomous systems such as robots in homes, industry, and public settings. The robots have been used to acquire new knowledge about how robots can engage in emotional interactions, facilitate learning, and help support people’s health and well-being in emergencies.
