Social demand for robots to be our partners in the daily life is rapidly increasing. Full autonomous robots living with us should be the biggest dream for us to respond to the social demand. In addition to full autonomous robots, partial autonomy, in which the robots move autonomously in limited settings sharing its goals and behavior with humans, is another important solution for the robots to be our partners. Motion support of elderly and disability people and medical application are the potential fields of partial autonomy.
We have already developed many tools for creating the robots to be our partners such as the cognitive function modules by AI, soft bodies including soft actuators and sensors, and the human-robot communication skills through language and body contacts. When we evaluate each function, many of them are sometimes beyond our capabilities.
Instead of these advances, it seems that just the combinations of these tools are not enough to develop the robots what we want. What is needed and what is lacking for the next generation of robots?
In this round table, we would like to clarify what is enough and what is lacking for developing the next generation of robots, and create the discussion basis for further advances of cognitive robots and system.
