Intention Recognition Using Leap Motion Controller and Artificial Neural Networks

Abstract—Intention recognition has an important topic in the field of Human Robot Interaction. If the robot is wanted to make counter movements just in time according to human’s actions, a robotic system must recognize the intention of the human necessarily. In this paper, the robotics system designed to recognize the human’s intention is presented. In our robotic system, the information is provided from the sensor called as leap motion controller device. The decision about the human intention is made by artificial neural network. A scenario has been designed that a human subject tries to pile the boxes on each other. The main point for this robotic system and the scenario is to recognize the intention as which box would be held by the subject.

Keywords– artificial neural network (ANN); human robot interaction (HRI); intention estimation; intention recognition; leap motion
