Abstract: Understandable robots (aka explainable, intelligible or predictable
robots) is a subfield in Human-Robot Interaction that investigates how
robots should be designed so that humans understand them, in the sense
of being able to successfully interact with them. As interaction,
robots' capabilities and perceptions , and humans' discernment of robots
are ever-changing, the concept of understandability is a concept of
adaptation, and continuous and multifaceted change. In this presentation
we will cover, our past and ongoing research in this field, including
research design methods, aspects to determine the human's behavior, and
strategies that help the robot to support the understandability process.
