Robot Follows You, Can Understand Gestures

Robot Understands Human Gestures

This robot from Brown University can read human gestures.

While most of us may only think about futuristic robots interacting with us through speech, researchers at Brown have created a robot which responds to human gestures. These non-verbal commands include arm signals which indicate “follow,” “halt,” “wait” and “door breach.”

The robot also understands verbal commands, and has a variety of other sensors onboard.

As part of testing their new robotics project, this new robot was commanded to go through doors, comeback, turn, and follow people. A major goal of the project is to create a robot which follows a person like a shadow, unobtrusively waiting for a task.
