Understanding people's intention, be it action or thought, plays a fundamental role in establishing coherent communication amongst people, especially in non-proactive robotics, where the robot has to understand explicitly when to start an interaction in a natural way. In this work, a novel approach is presented to detect people's intention-for-interaction. The proposed detector fuses multimodal cues, including estimated head pose, shoulder orientation and vocal activity detection, using a probabilistic discrete state Hidden Markov Model. The multimodal detector achieves up to 80% correct detection rates improving purely audio and RGB-D based variants.
