A context-aware attention system is fundamental for regulating the robot behaviour in a social interaction since it enables social robots to actively select the right environmental stimuli at the right time during a multiparty social interaction. This contribution presents a modular context-aware attention system which drives the robot gaze. It is composed by two modules: the scene analyzer module manages incoming data flow and provides a human-like understanding of the information coming from the surrounding environment; the attention module allows the robot to select the most important target in the perceived scene on the base of a computational model. After describing the motivation, we report the proposed system and the preliminary test. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
