Robots will soon interact with humans in settings outside of a lab. Since it will be likely that their bodies will not be as developed as their programming, they will not have the complex limbs needed to perform simple tasks. Thus they will need to seek human assistance by asking them for help appropriately. But how will they know how to act? This research will focus on the specific nonverbal behaviors a robot will need to attract someone's attention and convince them to interact with it. In particular, it will need the correct facial expressions and gestures to carry out the above.
