This is the first book to describe how Autonomous Virtual Humans and Social Robots can interact with real people, be aware of the environment around them, and react to various situations. Researchers from around the world present the main techniques for tracking and analysing humans and their behaviour and contemplate the potential for these virtual humans and robots to replace or stand in for their human counterparts, tackling areas such as awareness and reactions to real world stimuli and using the same modalities as humans do: verbal and body gestures, facial expressions and gaze to aid seamless human-computer interaction (HCI).

The research presented in this volume is split into three sections:

-User Understanding through Multisensory Perception : deals with the analysis and recognition of a given situation or stimuli, addressing issues of facial recognition, body gestures and sound localization.

-Facial and Body Modelling Animation: presents the methods used in modelling and animating faces and bodies to generate realistic motion.

-Modelling Human Behaviours: presents the behavioural aspects of virtual humans and social robots when interacting and reacting to real humans and each other.

Context Aware Human-Robot and Human-Agent Interactionwould be of great use to students, academics and industry specialists in areas like Robotics, HCI, and Computer Graphics.
