Fuzzy inference based mentality estimation for eye robot agent


Household robots need to communicate with human beings in a friendly fashion. To achieve better understanding of displayed information, an importance and a certainty of the information should be communicated together with the main information. The proposed intent expression system aims to convey this additional information using an eye robot. The eye motions are represented as states in a pleasure-arousal space model. Change of the model state is calculated by fuzzy inference according to the importance and certainty of the displayed information. This change influences the arousal-sleep coordinate in the space which corresponds to activeness in communication. The eye robot provides a basic interface for the mascot robot system which is an easy to understand information terminal for home environments in a humatronics society.
