  • The emotional interface is essential technology for the robot to provide the proper service to the user. In this research, we developed emotional components for the service robot such as a neural network based facial expression recognizer, emotion expression technologies based on 3D graphical face expression and joints movements, considering a user's reaction, behavior selection technology for emotion expression. We used our humanoid robots, AMI and AMIET as the test-beds of our emotional interface. We researched on the emotional interaction between a service robot and a user by integrating the developed technologies. Emotional interface technology for the service robot, enhance the performance of friendly interaction to the service robot, to increase the diversity of the service and the value-added of the robot for human. and it elevates the market growth and also contribute to the popularization of the robot.

  • Application of the Microsoft robotics studio (MSRS) to the design of a factory safety monitoring robot is presented. Basic structures of the MSRS and the service are introduced. The service is the key building block of the MSRS. Control of the safety monitoring robot is performed using four basic services: 1) the robot service which communicates with the embedded micro-processor and other services, 2) the sensor service that notifies the subscribing services of the change of the sensor value, 3) the motor service which controls the power levels to the motors, 4) the drive service which maneuvers the robot. With built-in capabilities of the MSRS, control of factory safety monitoring robot can be more easily performed.

  • Network-based intelligent robot is connected with network system, provides interactions with humans, and carries out its own roles on ubiquitous computing environments. URC (Ubiquitous Robot Companion) robot has been proposed to develop network-based robot by applying distributed computing techniques. On URC robot, it is possible to save the computing power of robot client by environments, has been proposed to develop robot software using service-oriented architecture on server-client computing environments. The SOMAR client robot consists of two layers - device service layer and robot service layer. The device service controls physical devices, and the robot service abstracts robot's services, which are newly defined and generated by combining many device services. RSEL (Robot Service Executing Language) is defined in this paper to represent relations and connections between device services and robot services. A RESL document, including robot services by combining several device services, is translated to a programming language for robot client system using RSEL translator, then the translated source program is compiled and uploaded to robot client system with RPC (Remote Procedure Call) command. A SOMAR client system is easy to be applied to embedded systems of host/target architecture. Moreover it is possible to produce a light-weight URC client robot by reducing workload of RSEL processing engine.

  • In existing factory, robot has less necessity that consider person. However, person should be considered at design and use of service robot. To service robot can be used in everyday life along with this, more functions are required. Specially, medical service robot needs function that is intelligence function. Especially, to help patient brain disease patient (cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, imbecility), gait assistance Mobile robot consider ergonomic element necessarily. In order to develop the medical support service robot, the ergonomic design should be considered. This robot ergonomic design parameters are treated in ("evelopment of Medical Support Service Robot Using Ergonomic Design" 2003, ICASS) Fig2 show this Robot. In this study, navigation algorithm of walk assistance robot is analyzed in ergonomic view. Navigation algorithm of Mobile robot can divide by two patterns. Traditional derivative method has shortcoming in dynamic environment. Reactive method is result that react excellently in dynamic environment. However, number of behavior function is limited. So hybrid navigation algorithm was proposed by the alternative way. We consider enough user specificity at navigation algorithm application of gait assistance robot.

  • In a large scale robot system, one of important problems is software integration, which involves three elements: modularity, reusability and stability. By these issues, the degree of convenience of system integration, its required time and the performance of the system stability can be determined. In addition, the convenience of system management can be determined by the degree of completion of service components. This paper explains the template based service component (TBSC) for the integration of service components in networked robot. The important characteristics of TBSC are automatical execution and recovery process by a PnP supporting robot framework, which helps a system operator to manage a robot system comfortably. For easy implementation and system stability, we provide a service component creator and a verification tool to developers.

  • This paper presents an edutainment robot for young children. The edutainment robot called 'Mon-e' has developed by the Central R&D Laboratory at KT. The main services of the Mon-E robot are autonomous moving service, object card and story book telling service and videophone service. The RFID technology was introduced for easy interface to young children. The face of Mon-E robot is mounted with an RFID reader. The RFID tag is pasted on story book and object card. If you approach a book or an object card to the face of Mon-E, the Mon-E robot recognizes the identified code and plays its service. In autonomous moving, if the Mon-E robot meets obstacles, it moves back and turns left or right or half rotation. In videophone service, if young children approach an RFID card to the Mon-E, the Mon-E can make a call to the specific number, which is contained in the RFID card. The developed Mon-E robot has tested in real world environment and is evaluated young children and their parents. In the result of evaluation, the feeling of satisfaction was high to main services of Mon-E robot.

  • Combining robot and network gives us many advantages like lightweight hardware specification of robot, a various robot service, simple upgrade of robot, easy management and so on. Among these advantages, Presence service and openAPI are most important. Presence is simple but powerful service. It makes user to know the status information of robot and enables user to control robot from a remote place. OpenAPI which is also a feature of WEB2.0 enables $3^{rd}$ parties to make a various mashup service easily and rapidly. Finally presence and openAPI can help URC service to be ubiquitous and successful.

  • In this study, the concept of autonomous mobility is applied to a medical service robot. The aim of the development of the service robot is for the elderly assisting walking rehabilitation. This study aims that the service robot design parameter is proposed in ergonomic view. The walking assistant path pattern is derived from analyzing the elderly gait analysis. A lever is installed in the AMR in order to measure the pulling force and the leading force of the elderly. A lever mechanism is applied for walking assistant service of the AMR. This lever is designed for measuring the leading force of the elderly. The elderly adjusts the velocity of the robot by applying force to the lever. The action scope and the service mechanism of the robot are developed for considering and analyzing the elderly action patterns. The ergonomic design parameters, that is, dimensions, action scope and working space are determined based on the elderly moving scope. The gait information is acquired by measuring the guide lever force by load cells and working pattern by the electromyography signal.
