Abstract

In this paper, we propose the method for expressing emotion for the emotional robot through the affective stimuli such as ‘hit,’ ‘stoke,’ ‘tickle,’ ‘poke,’ ‘embrace,’ etc. We developed the experiment platform, KOBIE, for experiment the emotion expression system. The KOBIE is the emotional robot which is made for an interaction between a human being and a robot through the affective interaction. Our system can be used in developing the cyber character (Avatar) having an emotion or developing the apparatus having an emotion in the ubiquitous environment.
