CSE 591: Human-aware Robotics Fall 2016

Course Description:

Despite the tremendous progress in the field of robotics made during the last decade, we are still experiencing robots’ curious ambivalence to humans. At the same time, an increasing number of applications demand that humans and robots work together. Although a few of these applications can be handled through ‘tele-operation’, technologies that act in concert with the humans in a teaming relationship with increasing levels of autonomy are desirable. For such robots to be useful, it is important for them to be human-aware and behave in a nonintrusive fashion. In this class, we will cover several broad areas in human-aware robotics and discuss the state-of-the-art approaches in each of these areas. This is a graduate level seminar course in which we will introduce the development of recent approaches in AI and Robotics and their applications to human-aware robotics.
