BENDER - Visual Attention In A Group Setting: Ikaros open-source environment for controlling a robot

The aim of the project is to first study, and gather data on, individuals’ visual attention and resulting behavior in a group setting, and to use that data to create a cognitive model ready for export into the Ikaros open-source environment for controlling a robot arm. The ultimate goal of the project is to have a robot arm represent the attention of a human in a group setting by moving its head towards salient features of its surroundings, in the same natural way that a human would. One of the main challenges has been to simulate joint attention, an ability without which the robot would be incapable of appearing human-like at all. In this report, the solution to that and other challenges are presented.
