Social Tag: Finding the Person with the Pink Hat

Marek Michalowski, Didac Busquets, Carl DiSalvo, Laura Hiatt, Nicholas Melchior, Reid Simmons, and Selma Sabanovic

At the AAAI 2005 Robot Exhibition, the robot GRACE played a game of "social tag" that involved human-robot social interaction, navigation, and interface design. The task was for GRACE to locate and rendezvous with one of our team members, who was wearing a pink hat. The robot found the target not primarily through the modalities of sight or sound, but rather through social interactions with strangers in the environment.
