About NIFTi
NIFTi is about human-robot cooperation. About teams of robots and humans doing tasks together, interacting together to try and reach a shared goal. NIFTi looks at how the robot could bear the human in mind. Literally. When determining what to do or say next in human-robot interaction; when, and how. NIFTi puts the human factor into cognitive robots, and human-robot team interaction in particular.   Each year, NIFTi evaluates its systems together with several USAR organizations. Rescue personnel teams up with NIFTi robots to carry out realistic missions, in real-life training areas.

Situated Communication for Joint Activity in Human-Robot Teams

IEEE Intelligent Systems, 27(2):27-35.

In many real-life applications, it is not enough for robots to be autonomous. They need to carry out their tasks, together with humans. That requires communication, to coordinate activities, to work together, to act together as a team, for example in an Urban Search & Rescue mission. This article describes an approach to situated communication between humans and robots, set in the context of a dynamic human-robot team.
