Most current forms of Human Robot Interaction (HRI) require “direct” interaction/contact with the robot, often causing much inconvenience and usability problems. In this paper, we present a novel “indirect” HRI paradigm using a moving projector, mounted on the robot, and hand-held interaction device. The moving projector projects information on the nearby surface found by a search algorithm which uses the area map, robot position, and user position. The display provides a relatively large area on which indirect interaction can occur through a hand-held interaction device. We discuss various technical issues in realizing the newly proposed HRI paradigm and demonstrate the projection surface selection algorithm in a museum guidance setting through simulation.
