ShowMe for TabletPC

Participants : Pierre Rouanet [ correspondant ] , Pierre-Yves Oudeyer.

It has been built on a TabletPC in order to allow mobility during the interaction. By looking at the screen, the user can see what the robot is looking at. He can also drive the robot by sketching on the touch-screen using the stylus. Then, specific gestures are used to draw the attention of the robot towards new objects, and the software allows the user to associate a name to these objects. Finally, the software allows the user to ask the robot to search and reach an object given its name/the word associated to it.

ShowMe is a tablet PC application that facilitates intuitive and robust human-robot teaching interactions.

Figure 5. ShowMe is a software designed to make the interaction between a human and a robot much easier, and more particularly to help the user to show and learn new objects to the robot.
