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.

DR 8.2.4: Proceedings of the First NIFTi Autumn School on ‘Human-Robot Cooperation’ 2011

DR8.2.4 describes the eration’. The NIFTi Autumn School was organized by TNO and consisted of 5 days, from November 7th until November 11th, 2011. The goal of this autumn school was two-fold. First, students are intro- duced to theories and technology related to different aspects of human-robot interaction and cooperation. Lectures will be given by leading scientists working in human-robot interaction and robotics. The lecturers have been chosen because of their interest in advanced interaction technologies, user interface design, computer vision, human factors, strategies for adaptive mul- timodal team communication, flexible robot planning, and spatio-temporal models for situation awareness. Second, the students gain hands-on expe- rience with project components, and integration methodology, by working in multi-disciplinary teams on assignments. About 30 phd-students from all around Europe attended the autumn school.
