Human-Swarm Interaction through Distributed Cooperative Gesture Recognition

  • Authors: Giusti, A.; Nagi, J.; Gambardella, L. M.; Bonardi, S.; Di Caro, G. A.

The video presents the first results of a Swiss-funded project focusing on symbiotic peer-to-peer interaction and cooperation between humans and robot swarms. As a first step, we considered human-swarm interaction, and selected the use of hand gestures to let a human communicate with a swarm of relatively simple mobile robots. In our scenario, a hand gesture encodes a command, that the swarm will execute. The robots that we used are the foot-bots, developed in the Swarmanoid project [1].
