Abstract

The authors have been developing humanoid robots in order to develop new mechanisms and functions for a humanoid robot that has the ability to communicate naturally with a human by expressing human-like emotion. We considered that human hands play an important role in communication because human hands have grasping, sensing and emotional expression abilities. Then, we developed the the Emotion Expression Humanoid Robot WE-4RII (Waseda Eye No.4 Refined II) by integrating the new humanoid robot hands RCH-1 (RoboCasa Hand No.1) into the Emotion Expression Humanoid Robot WE-4R. Furthermore, we confirmed that RCH-1 and WE-4RII had effective emotional expression ability because the correct recognition rate of WE-4RII's emotional expressions were higher than the WE-4R's one. In this paper, we describe the mechanical features of WE-4RII.
