Abstract

With the development of the technology such as the Internet of Things, 5G and the Cloud, people pay more attention to their spiritual life, especially emotion sensing and interaction; however, it is still a great challenge to realize the far-end awareness and interaction between people, for the existing far-end interactive system mainly focuses on the voice and video communication, which can hardly meet people’s emotional needs. In this paper, we have designed cloud-assisted pillow robot (CP-Robot) for emotion sensing and interaction. First, we use the signals collected from the Smart Clothing, CP-Robot and smart phones to judge the users’ moods; then we realize the emotional interaction and comfort between users through the CP-Robot; and finally, we give a specific example about a mother who is on a business trip comforting her son at home through the CP-Robot to prove the feasibility and effectiveness of the system.
