RECONFIGURABLE INTERACTIVITY OF PET-TYPE ROBOT REHABILITATION SYSTEM

Toshiyuki Maeda

Abstract

This paper addresses a pet-type robot rehabilitation system for aged people. The robot offers interactivity, which can communicate autonomously and communicate with others using Internet-connectivity, for being a partner. To avoid being satiated with conversation, we propose reconfigurable interactivity, especially focused conversation contents. In order to watch over aged people through the Net, we have furthermore developed auto-detection alert system for aged people by checking user logs, which is also reconfigurable.
