Abstract

We propose that an important aspect of human–robot
interaction is perspective-taking.We show how perspective-taking
occurs in a naturalistic environment (astronauts working on a collaborative
project) and present a cognitive architecture for performing
perspective-taking called Polyscheme. Finally, we show a
fully integrated system that instantiates our theoretical framework
within a working robot system. Our system successfully solves a
series of perspective-taking problems and uses the same frames
of references that astronauts do to facilitate collaborative problem
solving with a person.
