Abstract

Robots that aim to communicate with humans are becoming increasingly common. However, with only a single robot, the ability and scope of communication are limited. On the other hand, it is difficult to express the same unified mood and emotion by combining multiple devices. Therefore, we propose integrated robotics architecture (IRA). This architecture provides a communication environment that combines various robots and devices. In this architecture, a publish/subscribe model is used in the communication between devices, and a framework of Kansei computing is used for nonverbal expression. Communication is basically done with meta-level messages. This method makes it possible to dynamically express the emotion linked with a robot's utterances throughout the environment. In this paper, we created an initial prototype and verified the feasibility of communication and control.
