Abstract

The authors developed a human-like head robot WE-3 RV (Waseda Eye No. 3 Refined V). It realized the pursuing motion in 3 D space using coordinated head-eye motion with V. 0. R. (Vestibular-Ocular Reflex) as well as pursuing a motion in depth direction using the angle of convergence between the two eyes. Moreover, it can express human like facial expressions using eyebrows, eyelids, lips, jaw, facial color and voice.
