Analysis of human-robot social interaction for use in crowd simulation, An
The simulation of crowd dynamics is an important tool for a number of applications, including architectural design, pedestrian transport and escape planning. The use of robots has been recently proposed as a mechanism to improve the efficiency of pedestrian transport by modifying the large-scale dynamics of crowds. However, in order to simulate the effect of introducing robots into a crowd, one must have a model of how individuals will react to the form and behavior of the robots that are introduced. To this end, this paper provides an overview of the existing work on human-robot interaction in ...
