The robot has emerged as a factor in the daily lives of humans, taking the form of a mechanical pet or similar source of entertainment. A robot system that is designed to coexist with humans, i.e., a coexistence-type robot system, is important. "It exists in various environments together with the humans: the robot system which interacts with a physical, informational emotion with the humans, etc., must be valued." When studying the impact of intimacy on the human/robot relationship, we have to examine the problems that can arise as a result of physical intimacy (coordination of safety on the hardware side and a software side). Furthermore, we should also consider the informational aspects of intimacy (recognition technology and information transport and sharing). This paper reports the interim results of the research of a system configuration that enhances the physical intimacy relationship in the symbiosis of the human and the robot.
