    The market for industrial robots grew rapidly during the 1970s and 1980s, with a peak demand in 1991. However, due to the subsequent recession in the world economy, the market for industrial robots has been slow or stagnant over the last decade. The value of industrial robots has decreased in that term, even though they have undergone considerable technical advances. On the other hand, human inter... View full abstract»

    We have developed a humanoid robot, HERMES, to study several key technologies that are important for personal robots, such as robot design, sensors and perception, locomotion, localization and navigation, manipulation, human-robot communication and interaction, adaptability and learning, system architecture and integration, and dependability. The robot's skill-based system architecture was derived... View full abstract»

    Mental commit robots have been developed to provide psychological, physiological, and social effects in human beings through physical interaction. The appearance of these robots is designed to emulate real animals such as a cat or a seal. The seal robot was developed especially for therapeutic applications. Seal robots have been applied to assisting the activity of the elderly at a day service cen... View full abstract»

    Recent research shows that people perceive and treat robots not just as machines, but also as their companions or artificial partners. Person-robot communication, viewed as a complex interactive system (CIS), is based upon three basic principles: interactivity, equifinality, and multimodality. Classification of artificial creatures from the robopsychologist's point of view divides them into two ma... View full abstract»

    In this paper we describe effects of human interactions with a pet-type robot, especially with AIBO. First, we describe a design concept for AIBO based on how to increase its "lifelike" appearance. By introducing statistical results of marketing, and experiments involving human-robot interactions using AIBO, we show that this pet-type robot activates human emotions effectively. Furthermore, the ex... View full abstract»

    This paper provides an outline of a new animatronic system, based on the technology of the flexible oscillating fin. The oscillating fin propulsion system was designed and constructed to be combined with a ship model. The system's feasibility has been confirmed by tank tests using the ship model. As a result, several advantages of the oscillating fin system have been found. A neural network was su... View full abstract»

    Interaction between humans and traditional robotic systems can be problematic, as the traditional robotic systems often perform repetitive actions in a restricted environment, whereas human interaction is often characterized by novel ways of interactions, which creates an ever-changing environment. Therefore, traditional robotic system methods and technologies are often difficult to apply in situa... View full abstract»

    We report the development and evaluation of a new interactive humanoid robot that communicates with humans and is designed to participate in human society as a partner. A human-like body will provide an abundance of nonverbal information and enable us to smoothly communicate with the robot. To achieve this, we developed a humanoid robot that autonomously interacts with humans by speaking and gestu... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a robotic-head system as a multimodal communication device for human-robot interaction, and the system's potential application in home environments. Most robotic systems for natural user interaction have facial expressions, since facial expressiveness is regarded as a key component to developing personal attachment along with prosodic expressiveness. In the first part of the p... View full abstract»
