초록
This paper presents the concept for the development of a pet-type robot with an emotionengine. The pet-type robot named KOBIE (KOala roBot with Intelligent Emotion) is able to interactwith a person through touch. KOBIE is equipped with tactile sensors on the body for interaction with aperson through recognition of his/her touching behaviors such as “Stroke”,“Tickle”,“Hit”. We havecovered KOBIE with synthetic fur fabric in order to can make him/her feel affection as well. KOBIE isable to also express an emotional status that varies according to the circumstances under which it ispresented. The emotion engine of KOBIE's emotion expression system generates an emotional statusin an emotion vector space which is associated with a predefined needs and mood models. In order toexamine the feasibility of our emotion expression system, we verified a changing emotionalstatus in our emotion vector space by a touching behavior. We specially examined thereaction of children who have interacted with three kind of pet-type robots: KOBIE, PARO,AIBO for roughly 10 minutes to investigate the children's preference for pet-type robots.
