Human Centered Robotic Systems must be able to interact with humans such that the burden of adaptation lies with the machine and not with the human. This book collates a set of prominent papers presented during a two-day conference on qHuman Centered Robotic Systemsq held on November 19-20, 2009, in Bielefeld University, Germany. The aim of the conference was to bring together researchers from the areas of robotics, computer science, psychology, linguistics, and biology who are all focusing on a shared goal of cognitive interaction. A survey of recent approaches, the current state-of-the-art, and possible future directions in this interdisciplinary field is presented. It provides practitioners and scientists with an up-to-date introduction to this dynamic field, with methods and solutions that are likely to significantly impact on our future lives.To this purpose we have chosen the Nintendo Wiimote controller, a low-cost gestural TUI suitable for motion tracking. We have ... Guo and Sharlin  have used the Wiimote as a tangible interface for controlling the AIBO robot dog. A user study ...  presented a qualitative evaluation of the Wiimote device as a tool for controlling unmanned robot systems to improve usability and to reduce training costs.
