Abstract : Human Robot Interaction is entering into the interesting phase where the relationship with a robot is envisioned more as one of companionship with the human partner than a mere master-slave relationship. For this to become a reality, the robot needs to understand human behavior and not only react appropriately but also be socially proactive. A Companion Robot will also need to collaborate with the human in his daily life and will require a reasoning mechanism to manage the collaboration and also handle the uncertainty in the human intention to engage and collaborate. In this work, we will identify key elements of such interaction in the context of a collaborative activity, with special focus on how humans successfully collaborate to achieve a joint action. We will show application of these elements in a robotic system to enrich its social human robot interaction aspect of decision making. In this respect, we provide a contribution to managing robot high-level goals and proactive behavior and a description of a coactivity decision model for collaborative human robot task. Also, a HRI user study demonstrates the importance of timing a verbal communication in a proactive human robot joint action.
