With the functions of physical robots now extended beyond academia into factories, homes and fields, the interactions between humans and robots have become increasingly extensive and ubiquitous. The current state of human interaction with robots in comparison to simple “machines” that operate in structured environment, such as industrial robotics, is quite different. Robots differ from these machines in that they are capable of functioning in evolving situations, reasoning and acting in a relatively complex domain. The deployment of these robots leads to an important research issue in the design and development of a Human-Robot System (HRS), i.e. to look into how human and robot can interact seamlessly to accomplish task objectives.
