PLACE: CSE Seminar Room Level 1 K17
This is an overview talk about the WITAS UAV project, the software
architecture and some of the core functionalities developed in
the project, and some speculation on where it might go next.
The WITAS UAV project under development at Link�ping University, Sweden,
is an autonomous mobile helicopter with onboard AI, adjustable with
respect to the operating environment and operator decisions. We have
built a multi-modal communication interface for this robot, capable of
complex dialogues about the *UAV's* tasks and state, and about situations
as they unfold on the ground.
The interface supports complex dialogues between the operator and
the *UAV* using natural conversational language. The multi-modal
aspects of the interface derive from the ability to combine speech,
text, graphics, gestures, live video, and sensor data in the same
communication. Dialogues about multiple topics can be interleaved,
in contrast to familiar ``form filling'' dialogue systems where an
inflexible ordering of inputs and outputs is required.
