Situated dialogue and understanding spatial organization: Knowing what is where and what you can do there

The paper presents an HRI architecture for human-augmented mapping. Through interaction with a human, the robot can augment its autonomously learnt metric map with qualitative information about locations and objects in the environment. The system implements various interaction strategies observed in independent Wizard-of-Oz studies. The paper discusses an ontology-based approach to representing and inferring 2.5-dimensional spatial organization we adopt, and how knowledge of spatial organization can be acquired autonomously or through spoken dialogue interaction.
