Abstract

We propose a motion generation model in which robots presume the sound source of an environmental sound and imitate its motion. Sharing environmental sounds between humans and robots enables them to share environmental information. It is difficult to transmit environmental sounds in human-robot communications. We approached this problem by focusing on the iconic gestures. Concretely, robots presume the motion of the sound source object and map it to the robot motion. This method enabled robots to imitate the motion of the sound source using their bodies.
