This PhD project within the field of Proactive Human-Robot Interaction is concerned with investigating and mapping the relative young subfield of Human-Robot Interaction as well as making advancements to a selection of methods and technologies applied within the field. Proactive HRI is concerned with endowing robots with proactive human behavioural traits or capabilities mainly with the purpose of increasing intuitivenes and efficiency in the human-robot interaction. Anticipatory behaviour, and in relation to this, intend estimation, confusion or ambiguity resolution, contextual awareness and task selection and planning are some of the subjects studied in this discipline; furthermore, methods for enabling robots to autonomously initiate interaction is a studied area within this field.
