Introduction to the Special Issue on
Human­Robot Interaction
I. INTRODUCTION
THE growing importance of human­robot interaction (HRI)
is clearly demonstrated by the growing number of individ-
uals focusing their research in this area, the inclusion of paper
and panel sessions at nonrobotics focused conferences such as
the IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cy-
bernetics and Human Factors meetings, as well as this being the
third special issue on the topic in the last two years [1], [2]. In
addition to the existing annual IEEE Workshop on Robot and
Human Interactive Communication (RO-MAN), the First An-
nual Conference on Human­Robot Interaction (HRI'06) will
take place in March 2006 [3]. HRI'06 seeks to create an inher-
ently interdisciplinary venue for experts in HRI, human factors,
ergonomics, and human­computer interaction.
HRI research is not new. Initially, the work was driven
by the need to handle hazardous radioactive materials [4].
Human­robot interfaces began in the form of teleoperation of
