The face becomes the remote control robot

The University of San Diego wants to maximize their likely future interactions between students and teachers robotic. The goal: to have a robot that pace in its current function of facial motion of its audience

Facial expressions should be able to control the behavior of a robot. Jacob Whitehill, a researcher at the UC San Diego School of Engineering, works in the remote control of a video sequence showing the course depending on the degree of understanding of students. The project in the idea that future teachers robotic systems could be developed. The long term goal is to make robots better teachers. The project is based on technology of facial recognition. Thus, Jacob Whitehill has shown that the information given by our facial expressions while watching videos help you understand whether or not the explanation which is filmed. Continue reading
