  • Adaptable multimodal interaction framework for robot-assisted cognitive training 

    Taranovic, Aleksandar; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Torras, Carme (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The size of the population with cognitive impairment is increasing worldwide, and socially assistive robotics offers a solution to the growing demand for professional carers. Adaptation to users generates more natural, ...
  • Adaptive modality selection algorithm in robot-assisted cognitive training 

    Taranovic, Aleksandar; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Torras, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Interaction of socially assistive robots with users is based on social cues coming from different interaction modalities, such as speech or gestures. However, using all modalities at all times may be inefficient as it can ...
  • A modified distributed bees algorithm for multi-sensor task allocation 

    Tkach, Itshak; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Nof, Shimon Y.; Edan, Yael (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Multi-sensor systems can play an important role in monitoring tasks and detecting targets. However, real-time allocation of heterogeneous sensors to dynamic targets/tasks that are unknown a priori in their locations and ...
  • A quantitative analysis of dressing dynamics for robotic dressing assistance 

    CHANCE, GREG; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Caleb-Solly, Praminda; Dogramadzi, Sanja (2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    Assistive robots have a great potential to address issues related to an aging population and an increased demand for caregiving. Successful deployment of robots working in close proximity with people requires consideration ...
  • Comparison of interaction modalities for mobile indoor robot guidance : direct physical interaction, person following, and pointing control 

    Jevtic, Aleksandar; Doisy, Guillaume; Parmet, Ysrael; Edan, Yael (2015)
    Article
    Open Access
    Three advanced natural interaction modalities for mobile robot guidance in an indoor environment were developed and compared using two tasks and quantitative metrics to measure performance and workload. The first interaction ...
  • "Elbows out": predictive tracking of partially occluded pose for robot-assisted dressing 

    Chance, Greg; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Caleb-Solly, Praminda; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme; Dogramadzi, Sanja (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robots that can assist in the Activities of Daily Living (ADL), such as dressing, may support older adults, addressing the needs of an aging population in the face of a growing shortage of care professionals. Using depth ...
  • On interaction quality in human-robot interaction 

    Bensch, Suna; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Hellström, Thomas (SciTePress, 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In many complex robotics systems, interaction takes place in all directions between human, robot, and environment. Performance of such a system depends on this interaction, and a proper evaluation of a system must build ...
  • Personalized robot assistant for support in dressing 

    Jevtic, Aleksandar; Flores Valle, Andrés; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Chance, Greg; Caleb-Solly, Praminda; Dogramadzi, Sanja; Torras, Carme (2019)
    Article
    Open Access
    Robot-assisted dressing is performed in close physical interaction with users who may have a wide range of physical characteristics and abilities. Design of user adaptive and personalized robots in this context is still ...
  • Resource-based modality selection in robot-assisted cognitive training 

    Taranovic, Aleksandar; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Hernández Farigola, Joan; Tantinyà, Natalia; Abdelnour, Carla; Torras, Carme (2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The majority of socially assistive robots interact with their users using multiple modalities. Multimodality is an important feature that can enable them to adapt to the user behavior and the environment. In this work, we ...
  • Robot motion adaptation through user intervention and reinforcement learning 

    Jevtic, Aleksandar; Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (Elsevier, 2018-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Assistant robots are designed to perform specific tasks for the user, but their performance is rarely optimal, hence they are required to adapt to user preferences or new task requirements. In the previous work, the potential ...
  • User evaluation of an interactive learning framework for single-arm and dual-arm robots 

    Jevtic, Aleksandar; Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (Springer, 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Social robots are expected to adapt to their users and, like their human counterparts, learn from the interaction. In our previous work, we proposed an interactive learning framework that enables a user to intervene and ...
  • What's “up”? Resolving interaction ambiguity through non-visual cues for a robotic dressing assistant 

    CHANCE, GREG; Caleb-Solly, Praminda; Jevtic, Aleksandar; Dogramadzi, Sanja (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Robots that can assist in activities of daily living (ADL) such as dressing assistance, need to be capable of intuitive and safe interaction. Vision systems are often used to provide information on the position and movement ...
