Robot Actors Project "Hataraku Watashi
(I, Worker)"

Professor Hiroshi ISHIGURO

School and Graduate School of Engineering
Osaka University



Course Description

Communication and service robots are trying to fit in to human society.  However, the feeling that they are foreign bodies can’t be eliminated because of their awkward movement.  This is attributed to the gap between the human beings’ image of robots and the functions robots have.
The purpose of the Robot Actors Project is to show people the relationship they can have with robots that will be introduced for practical use in the near future, to make the image of robots more concrete, and to evaluate motion design as a new type of product design that will be important in areas outside of just robots.
