4 Experimental Results and Method Comparisons In our experiments, we used a subset from the CMU facial expression database, containing 7 persons who are displaying 5 expressions: surprise, sadness, joy, disgust and anger. For dynamical facial expression recognition evaluation, we used the truncated trajectories, that is, the temporal sequence containing 9 frames, with the first frame representing a ”subtle” facial expression (corresponding more or less with a ”half apex” state, see the left column of Figure 2) and the last one corresponding to the apex state of the facial expression (see the right column of Figure 2).

In general those interfaces can be sorted by function in two groups which is illustrated in figure 4. On the one hand there are service interfaces describing skills and capabilities of humans. As an example for the case study presented in this paper (see next section) a service interface describing a door-opening service was defined and implemented. On the other hand there are so called communication interfaces which account for the lack of a direct communication channel between the system and the user.

T. AmI related research. Three disjoint sub-groups were created by (randomly) splitting the cohort and assigned to one of the following experimental conditions: 1. Subjects contained by the first group are not confronted with extended and cognitively demanding interaction task. The results of the control task are expected to be optimal as no cognitive interference will occur. The results of the memorization task of this control group will serve as reference value. 2. Prior to the experiment the subjects of this group are given detailed instructions on how to solve the advanced interaction task (cf.
