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 3.4.4: Adaptive situated HRI for in-field joint exploration

This report presents the results of WP3 for NIFTi Year 4. We continued developing the mobile interfaces to facilitate multi-modal communication in the setup including two robots and a human team member in the field and the rest of the remotely located human team members. Based on exereince from previous experiments we extended the support for sharing pictures taken by the in-field rescuer across the whole system. We also developed an adaptive system allowing the robot to modify its spatial belief model and therefore its behavior due to violations of user expectations. We furthermore continued our work on detection and classification of stress and cognitive load in speech using data from our earlier experiments. The NIFTi multi-modal operational interfaces were used in experiments in the setting of human-assisted exploration of an earthquake site in Prato, Italy.
