Abstract

This paper introduces a daily-life-support robot, ASAHI. ASAHI is equipped with a robot avatar, which converses with the user using speech and gesture. He can perform a simple support task, such as bringing an object, as well as following the user to move around the floor. The feature of ASAHI is that it has an ability to recover from failures such as misrecognition of objects or losing the person it is following, by communicating with the user and expressing the robot's internal states.
