Multimodal Sensing of Human Behavior
Project Abstract/Statement of Work:
Home robotic companions provide support, entertainment, and interaction. This requires that an agent is user-aware: that it can accurately sense and interpret user state. We focus on three aspects of user state tied to the home environment: user comfort (i.e., thermal comfort), affective state (i.e., ambient and expressed valence/activation), and stress. The primary goal of this proposal is to create innovative approaches that are accurate and robust for user state recognition.
