The research team proposes to use Quori to enable the following research thrusts:
1. socially-aware navigation,
2. empirical study of Human-Robot Interaction involving movement and mid-torso actuation, and
3. collaborative interaction in home, office, hospital, and education environments.
The research team proposes empirical studies to evaluate intent through body language, morphological aspects of robot design, and relationships between navigation behavior and perceived social intelligence.
