Person's body and head orientations are important resources to infer/anticipate the person's intention. To support these resources for tele-communication, we have been developing a remote control robot that mediates communication. The robot's head motion is synchronized with the remote operator's head motion, and his/her face is shown on the robot's chest display. We compared the effect of the robot's head and the chest display and the result showed that there is no difference in the effect on anticipation but the chest display is preferred in terms of affinity.
