Robotic products promise interactions that can be far more complex than those afforded by conventional products. This project involves the development of authoring and prototyping tools that support the process of designing such products. An example of such tools is Interaction Blocks that provides designers with a pattern language to prototype dialogue-based human-robot interactions. The image above illustrates a designed constructing a dialogue and testing it on a NAO robot.
