In our research on engagement and collaboration in human-robot interaction at Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories (MERL) from 2003 to 2007, we developed first a "penguinoid" and then a humanoid robot which can recognize and track human faces, detect and respond to human nods and gaze, and which itself uses pointing, gaze and simple spoken dialogue to communicate. This research is continuing at WPI.
