In the final year of this project, aside from the independent studies we also combined some of the research results into integrated systems. The major research results are shown as follows.
Development of en environment recognition method and a face extraction method from arbitrary scene that could be mounted on mobile robots moving in human-living environment. A number of experiments in real world environment were executed to verify the methods.
Development of microphone array system for sound focusing and sound separation. A number of experiments were done to confirm the effectiveness of the methods.
Development of robot control based on the human-evaluation oriented training mechanism. We executed a number of experiments using humanoid robots to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method.
Development of physical robot head that is able to show natural gesture and emotional expression. Our experiments show hat the robot is able to intuitively communicate with human.
Development of bipedal robot, based on the parallel link mechanism that is able to transport human in daily life environment. The experiments on unregulated environment verify the effectiveness of the system.
Development of robot arms system with integrated visual mechanism tot enable the system to make a flexible adaptation into human living environment The experiments in human daily living environment and daily cores show the effectiveness of the system.
Development of humanoid type bipedal robot WABIAN-2, which is able to generate actions that are similar to that of humans.
Development of robot iSHA to be used as a plat form of various human-machine interface studies.
Development of multimodal communication robot ROBISUKE that integrate audio and visual processing system to realize multimodal interaction.
