Intent communication is crucial for human-robot interactions, allowing robots to understand and respond to human intentions and enabling humans to comprehend potentially autonomous robots’ intentions. Social robots have become increasingly popular in various fields, from healthcare to education, due to their ability to interact with humans naturally and intuitively. Enabling seamless communication between robots and humans is a key challenge in developing effective social robots. This workshop explores the intersection of intent communication and user experience in social robotics, with a focus on human-centered human-robot interaction. The workshop aims to bring together researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss recent advances in intent communication and user experience design in social robotics. Participants can present their research, share experiences, and engage in interactive discussions with other attendees. The workshop provides a forum for collaboration and knowledge exchange to advance the state-of-the-art in social robotics and HRI. This is the second iteration of the RoboX workshop at MuC.
