#研究分享#【机器人的发展】“能与人类进行互动,且能确保安全的人机交互”是机器人研究的下一个重大步骤。要使机器人拥有先进的社会智力:比如机器人交给你烫手或尖锐的东西,它需要知道这是否引起了你的注意力。但目前的机器人还停留在:它可以识别孩子的挥舞,但不理解挥舞的意义。

Human gestures perplex Asimo, Honda museum robot guide

Honda's popular robot Asimo faced problems with gesture recognition on its first day as a museum guide at the Miraikan science museum in Tokyo.

The machine struggled to differentiate between museum-goers raising their hands to ask a question and raising their hands to take photos, Associated Press reported.

It is "working" as a tour guide at the museum for the next four weeks as a trial.

Asimo cannot respond to voice commands.

The robot is instead designed to answer 100 questions selected via touchscreen from a written panel.

But during a demonstration it froze and asked: "Who wants to ask Asimo a question?" repeatedly when people pointed their cameras at it.

"Right now, it can recognize a child waving to it, but it's not able to comprehend the meaning of the waving," said Honda robotics technology specialist Satoshi Shigemi.

'Not able to comprehend'

Asimo has been in development since 1996.

Speaking to the BBC last year, Prof Chris Melhuish, director of the British Robotics Laboratory at Bristol University, said that interaction with humans was the next big step for robotics.

"The key thing, and it's what we're working on at the moment, is safe human-robot interaction," he said.

"That's not just making the robot compliant, it's making it have advanced social intelligence. If a robot is handing you something hot or sharp, for example, it needs to know whether it has your attention."

Honda's head of robotics, Satoshi Shigemi, told the AP news agency: "Right now, it can recognise a child waving to it, but it's not able to comprehend the meaning of the waving."
