Developing an alternative paradigm in the field of human-robot interaction to current humanoid and sociable robots, we identify new principles for human-robot interaction based in multimodal intersubjectivity and sensorimotor coordination. The aim is to design efficient, flexible, adaptive, sustainable and functional robots that learn to assist human in their daily chores.
