Intelligent robots will give us the chance to use a computer in daily life. We implemented a humanoid robot, ASKA, at our university reception desk for computerized university guidance. This paper describes the hardware and software system of ASKA. ASKA can detect a user in front of the reception desk using a stereo camera system attached to the head and can recognize a user's question utterance. It can answer the question by its synthesized voice with hand gestures and head movements.
