Abstract

In this paper, we are proposing to develop an autonomous system using our anthropomorphic flutist robot which can interact naturally with humans. Therefore; the robot requires not only the ability of reproducing the score, but also needs the ability of extracting the symbolic descriptions defined by human through its sensors; to be used for deciding the next action of the robot. In this year, we are presenting the improvement of the mechanical system and the addition of some cognitive functions (i.e. music recognition) implemented on the new version of the flutist robot, the WF-4R (Waseda Flutist No.4 Refined). Both, mechanical and cognitive issues added to the robot will aid to implement the proposed an automatic transfer skill system. An experimental setup is described in order to test the recognition system implemented.
