SEER: Simulative Emotional Expression Robot / Takayuki Todo (JP)

SEER is a compact humanoid robot developed through intensive research into the gaze and facial expressions of human beings. The robot is able to focus its line of vision on a certain point without being thrown off by the motion of its neck. Because of this, the robot seems to have its own intentions to follow people and its surroundings, and to pay attention to them. A camera sensor helps it to observe with an interactive gaze. The robot’s expression can also be enriched by depicting its eyebrow curve with soft, elastic wire so that it gives the impression of emotions.
