Abstract [en]

Face-to-face human communication is a multimodal and incremental process. Humans employ  different information channels (modalities) for their communication. Since some of these modalities are more error-prone to specic type of data, a multimodal communication can benefit from strengths of each modality and therefore reduce ambiguities during the interaction. Such interfaces can be applied to intelligent robots who operate in close relation with humans. With this approach, robots can communicate with their human colleagues in the same way they communicate with each other, thus leading to an easier and more robust human-robot interaction (HRI).In this work we suggest a new method for implementing multimodal interfaces in HRI domain and present the method employed on an industrial robot. We show that operating the system is made easier by using this interface.
