Doctoral Research Seminar: "Error-related potentials in passive brain-computer interfaces for quantitative assessment and adaptation of robotic systems during human-robot interaction" by Stefan Ehrlich, ICS/TUM.

Abstract:

The development of robotic systems for interaction with human partners has been driven by offline assessment (in experimental psychology) or online adaptation (in robotics engineering). Both approaches have limitations which are addressed in this thesis by exploring the usability of error-related potentials (ErrPs) in non-invasive passive brain-computer interfaces. In result, this thesis demonstrates in three experimental studies and model-based simulations that ErrPs can be reliably decoded from human test persons during interaction with different robotic systems and be employed to assess and adapt robot’s behavior according to expectations of the human partner, this way facilitating and enhancing interaction performance.
