Recently, the number of elderly people increases in Japan, and the need of caring elderly people is also increase. Lack of exercise and falling down are the cause of making elderly people need care. For prevention of the situation above, the authors propose daily support system for elderly people using an interaction monitoring robot. Daily support system use the robot to implement both exercise support function and fall down sensing function. Exercise support function includes an interaction module which is for encouraging person exercise by action and utterance. Fall down sensing function use a monitoring module to detect human motion and tell user who fells down. This interaction monitoring robot has both interaction module and monitoring module. The authors develop both synchronous action function and instruction action function for the interaction module, and human motion recognition function for the monitoring module. The authors evaluated user's stress of experiment of exercise support function.
