Abstract

Robots should adjust their actions to suit the surrounding situation. This requires robots to be able to interchange signals to symbols and symbols to signals. We propose an intelligent application development platform based on the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Semantic Web Service (SWS). Our platform has five layers: Service, Process, Module, Knowledge and Data. The first three layers are implemented by using OWL-based Web Service Ontology (OWL-S). In the Module layer, there are two kinds of module: modules for action and modules for recognition. By combining these modules, this architecture can handle symbols and signals. In this study, we applied our method to RobotCafe, which is a cafe where robots work as waiters, to enable the robots to change their greetings to suit the situation when customers come and to assist the services of the cafe.
