A Study on Proactive Methods for Initiating Interaction with Human by Social Robots
This paper reports on the trending literature of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) methods for proactively initiating interaction with human by social robots in social spaces. The discussion explores the state-of-the-art proactive HRI methods and pinpoints the necessity of dedicated attention to initiate successful proactive interaction by social robots with human. The ﬁndings suggest that although reactive HRI methods are well established in social spaces but very few proactive methods are implemented. More research should be paid to introduce social robot’s proactive HRI approach properly in social spaces. The literature further showed that robust human detection and tracking method is crucial to read human’s is interests and intentions from their behaviors before introducing proactive HRI with human in social spaces. Finally, future potential applications of social robots are addressed.
