A handshake is an embodied interaction to display closeness using physical contact. In the case of a handshake between a human and a robot, robots can now smoothly communicate and coexist with humans without eliciting feelings of aversion in humans. To enable such a handshake, we proposed a model that simulates a handshake approach motion by analyzing the(More)
Handshake refers to embodied interaction using physical contact for closeness. In this paper, we analyze the handshake approaching motion between humans in cases with and without voice greeting and propose a handshake approaching motion model based on the analysis. In this model, a robot can generate handshake approaching motion that is emotionally(More)
We previously proposed a model for a handshake approaching motion with a voice greeting and developed a handshake robot system that applied the proposed model for embodied interaction with humans. The handshake robot system was fabricated by considering the average size of a human arm. However, small-size embodied interaction robots are required for use in(More)
Handshake refers to embodied interaction using physical contact for closeness. In this paper, we analyze the handshake motion between humans and propose a handshake approaching motion model and a shake-motion leading model based on the analysis. In the handshake approaching motion model, a robot can generate handshake approaching motion that is accepted(More)
Humans shake hands as a sign of greeting when they first meet one another to express a feeling of rapport. A handshake is an embodied interaction that involves physical contact. For interactions involving a human and a robot, if the robot generates a handshake motion that is emotionally acceptable to humans, it will lessen any feeling of aversion that the(More)
