A robotic head using projected animated faces
2011 (English)In: Proceedings of the International Conference on Audio-Visual Speech Processing 2011 / [ed] Salvi, G.; Beskow, J.; Engwall, O.; Al Moubayed, S., Stockholm: KTH Royal Institute of Technology, 2011, 71- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a setup which employs virtual animatedagents for robotic heads. The system uses a laser projector toproject animated faces onto a three dimensional face mask. This approach of projecting animated faces onto a three dimensional head surface as an alternative to using ﬂat, two dimensional surfaces, eliminates several deteriorating effects and illusions that come with ﬂat surfaces for interaction purposes, such as exclusive mutual gaze and situated and multi-partner dialogues. In addition to that, it provides robotic heads with a ﬂexible solution for facial animation which takes into advantage the advancements of facial animation using computer graphics overmechanically controlled heads.
