A new care taking system using a simplified robot face has been developed.
Patientspsila health care data can be stored on a personal computer
and the robotic system can take various actions depending on the
stored data. For example, it can tell a patient when it is time to
take his or her medication or alert them if they fail to take their
medication at the appropriate time. The robotic system communicates
with patients using facial expressions, a voice communication system
and a computer monitor. A robotic face was designed using simple
mechanisms in order to produce a low cost system. The facial impressions
of the simplified robot have been categorized by surveying over 500
people. In this paper, experiments on human facial expressions are
conducted in order to improve our simplified robot face used for
the care taking system, and the simple robot face is fabricated according
to the experimental results.
