This paper introduces a fully Bayesian reformulation of Interaction Primitives for human-robot interaction and collaboration. A key insight is that a subset of human-robot interaction is conceptually related to simultaneous localization and mapping techniques. Leveraging this insight we can significantly increase the accuracy of temporal estimation and inferred trajectories while simultaneously reducing the associated computational complexity. We show that this enables more complex human-robot interaction scenarios involving more degrees of freedom.
