Abstract

In this paper, we propose an age estimation system on the AIBO. AIBO is an entertainment robot produced by SONY co., Ltd. AIBO has many sensors to get information around itself and moves according to its instinct. This autonomous action is considerably natural. However, it is inadequate to communicate with people. If AIBO can estimate the human age from a face image, it becomes more excellent entertainment robot. Then, we propose the age estimation method on the AIBO by using face image. In this paper, the apparent age feature is extracted by the fast Fourier transform (FFT), and it is selected by the GA. Moreover, the age is estimated by the 1-dimensional SOM. In order to show the effectiveness of the proposed method, we show the simulation examples.
