    Abstract

    In this paper, we discuss the communication between autonomous robots and humans through the development of a robot which has an emotion model. The model depicts the endocrine system of humans and has four kinds of hormone parameters to adjust various internal conditions such as motor output, cooling fan output and sensor gain. We surveyed 126 visitors at the '97 International Robot Exhibition held in Tokyo, Japan (Oct. 1997) to evaluate their psychological impressions of the robot. As a result, the human friendliness of the robot was confirmed and some factors of human-robot emotional communication were discovered.
