Human-Robot Interaction

Human-Robot Interaction or HRI is the complex field of study and design towards the best ways for a human and a robot to interact. It differs from the study of HCI or human computer interfaces, because a robot is usually capable of responding in a direct and meaningful physical manner, much as an animal or another human would.
