    University Calendar

    This half day program is designed for prospective freshmen (HS juniors and younger) and family members. Meet USC includes an information session on the University and the Admission process, a student led walking tour of campus, and a meeting with us in the Viterbi School. During the engineering session we will discuss the curriculum, research opportunities, hands-on projects, entrepreneurial support programs, and other aspects of the engineering school. Meet USC is designed to answer all of your questions about USC, the application process, and financial aid.

    Reservations are required for Meet USC. This program occurs twice, once at 8:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m.

    Please make sure to check availability and register online for the session you wish to attend. Also, remember to list an Engineering major as your "intended major" on the webform!

    Title: Nonverbal Communication for Non-Humanoid Robots
    Ph.D. Candidate: Elizabeth Cha
    Date and Time: Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 10:00 AM in RTH 406
    Committee: Maja Matarić (Chair), Gaurav Sukhatme, and Panayiotis Georgiou


    Robots are increasingly required to operate with and alongside humans in dynamic, unstructured environments. To facilitate the high levels of coordination and collaboration necessary for this goal, robots must communicate information about their state and actions. This information enables humans to predict a robot's future behavior and to plan their own actions accordingly. In human-human communication, this information is often exchanged through nonverbal cues. Non-humanoid robots, such as drones and autonomous cars, lack the anthropomorphic channels to replicate these cues. In this thesis, we primarily address two of the research challenges for human-robot communication for non-humanoid robots. First, we present experiments exploring the systematic design and application of nonverbal signals in different human-robot interaction scenarios. Second, we propose a framework for planning robot communication under uncertainty that employs our results in signal design to improve human-robot collaboration. We present results from an application and validation of this communication framework. Finally, we discuss the implications of this thesis work on the field of HRI and its impact on non-humanoid robots deployed in the real world.
