Natural human-robot interaction requires the coordinated interplay of perceptual, communicative, and motor processes as well as advanced interaction skills. The HUMAVIPS project aims to advance the state-of-the-art such that autonomous robots exhibit adequate behavior when dealing with a group of people. Research and technological developments emphasize the role played by multi-modal perception within principled models of human-robot interaction and of humanoid behavior. A humanoid-centered system architecture allows eased integration and fusion of auditory and visual skills on humanoid robots such as NAO.

This website promotes the use and development of an open-source software platform to foster dissemination and to ensure exploitation of project results beyond the lifetime of the project. While project results are aimed to be applicable to different kinds of robot systems, particular support and components is available for the NAO Robot as the primary demonstration platform in the HUMAVIPS project.
