Beyond Asimov: The Three Laws of Responsible Robotics
Found in: IEEE Intelligent Systems
By Robin Murphy, David D. Woods
Issue Date:July 2009
pp. 14-20
Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics have been inculcated so successfully into our culture that they now appear to shape expectations as to how robots should act around humans. However, there has been little serious discussion as to whether the Laws really do p...
Motion Detection from Temporally Integrated Images
Found in: Pattern Recognition, International Conference on
By Daniel Majchrzak, Sudeep Sarkar, Barry Sheppard, Robin Murphy
Issue Date:September 2000
pp. 3844
Motion blur arises when motion is fast relative to the shutter time of a camera. Unlike most work on motion blur, which considers the streaks due to motion burr to be noisy artifacts, in this paper we introduce a new method to extract motion information fr...
A proxemic-based HRI testbed
Found in: Proceedings of the Workshop on Performance Metrics for Intelligent Systems (PerMIS '12)
By Cindy L. Bethel, Robin Murphy, Vasant Srinivasan, Zachary Henkel
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 75-81
This paper describes a novel, low cost HRI testbed for the evaluation of robot movement, gaze, audio style, and media content as a function of proximity. Numerous human-robot interaction studies have established the importance of proxemics in establishing ...
Survivor buddy and SciGirls: affect, outreach, and questions
Found in: Proceeding of the 5th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '10)
By Aaron Rice, Brittany Duncan, Clifford Nass, Marco Garza, Negar Rashidi, Robin Murphy, Roozbeh Daneshvar, Sharath Prasad, Takis Zourntos, Vasant Srinivasan, Victoria Groom, Zachary Henkel
Issue Date:March 2010
pp. 127-128
This paper describes the Survivor Buddy human-robot interaction project and how it was used by four middle-school girls to illustrate the scientific process for an episode of "SciGirls", a Public Broadcast System science reality show. Survivor Buddy is a f...
HRI 2010 workshop 3: learning and adaptation of humans in HRI
Found in: Proceeding of the 5th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '10)
By Hiroshi Ishiguro, Robin Murphy, Tatsuya Nomura
Issue Date:March 2010
pp. 7-7
On the current situation where robots having functions of communication with humans begin to appear in daily-life fields, it should be considered how symbiosis of humans and robots can be achieved. Many existing studies have focused on how robots can learn...
Preliminary observation of HRI in robot-assisted medical response
Found in: Proceedings of the 4th ACM/IEEE international conference on Human robot interaction (HRI '09)
By Gabe Knezek, Kazuna Sawata, Maarten Van Zomeren, Masashi Konyo, Pedro Davalas, Robin Murphy, Satoshi Tadokoro
Issue Date:March 2009
pp. 5-6
This video captures human-robot interaction which occurred during an evaluation of a novel, snake-like search and rescue robot assisting with victim management. Most of the observations confirmed previous findings- That a 2:1 H-R ratio ratio is appropriate...
RSVP: an investigation of remote shared visual presence as common ground for human-robot teams
Found in: Proceeding of the ACM/IEEE international conference on Human-robot interaction (HRI '07)
By Jenny Burke, Robin Murphy
Issue Date:March 2007
pp. 161-168
This study presents mobile robots as a way of augmenting communication in distributed teams through a remote shared visual presence (RSVP) consisting of the robot's view. By giving all team members access to the shared visual display provided by a robot si...
Real HCI: what it takes to do HCI engineering for disasters, driving, disruption, and distributed work
Found in: CHI '06 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems (CHI '06)
By John D. Lee, Judy Olson, Robin Murphy, Stuart K. Card, William Newman
Issue Date:April 2006
pp. 57-60
The current dependence of HCI practice on feature-level design and defect-oriented usability evaluation is hindering it from addressing persistent societal problems such as disaster search and rescue, driver distraction and communication failures. HCI has ...
