A farewell to arms: Non-verbal communication for non-humanoid robots

Aaron G. Cass, Kristina Striegnitz, Nick Webb


Abstract
Human-robot interactions situated in a dynamic environment create a unique mix of challenges for conversational systems. We argue that, on the one hand, NLG can contribute to addressing these challenges and that, on the other hand, they pose interesting research problems for NLG. To illustrate our position we describe our research on non-humanoid robots using non-verbal signals to support communication.
