This project investigates gaze behaviors of a robot receiving an object from a human. Robot gaze is an important nonverbal behavior during human-robot handovers, yet prior work has only studied robots as givers. We analyze videos and human participant studies to make design recommendations for how to program a receiver robot’s social gaze.
