Abstract

Omnidirectional vehicles acting in human environment need to express their actions, because it is difficult for human to predict actions of the vehicles due to the loss of changes in posture. Omni-Winker is proposed as an indicator for omnidirectional vehicles, where the Omni-Winker expresses locomotive behavior such as the direction and speed of the vehicle to all human around the vehicles. Two type of Omni-Winker are developed and evaluated in Human-Robot Interaction situations. The proposed Omni-Winker leads to interactive collision avoidance, where the winker encourages human-driven collision avoidance in addition to existing intelligent sensing technology.
