    Abstract

    The authors have been developing human-like head robots in order to develop new head mechanisms and functions for a humanoid robot that has the ability to communicate naturally with a human by expressing human-like emotion. We were able to simulate four sensations (the visual, auditory, cutaneous and olfactory sensations) of a human's five senses by developing WE-3 (Waseda Eye No. 3) series since 1995. However, the robot system of WE-3 has become too complex and big from added improvements. Therefore, in 2002, we developed a new human-like head robot WE-4 (Waseda Eye No.4). We newly added a waist to WE-4, and realized emotional expression with not only the face, but also the upper-half part of the robot's body. Also, WE-4 is smaller and lighter from revisions in mechanisms of the robot head. In this paper, we describe the mechanical features of the human-like head robot WE-4.
