Kondo, Yutaka, Kawamura, Masato, Takemura, Kentaro, Takamatsu, Jun and Ogasawara, Tsukasa (2011): Gaze motion planning for android robot. In: Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Human Robot Interaction 2011. pp. 171-172.

Androids are potentially required to show human-like behavior, because their appearance resembles humans' physical features. Therefore, we propose a gaze motion planning method. Within this method, we control the convergence of eyes and the ratio of eye angle to head angle, which leads to a more precise estimation of gaze direction. We implemented our method on the android Actroid-SIT and conducted experiments for evaluation of the effects of our method. Through these experiments, we achieved a common guidance for androids when planning more precise gaze motion.

Takemura, Kentaro, Ito, Akihiro, Takamatsu, Jun and Ogasawara, Tsukasa (2011): Active bone-conducted sound sensing for wearable interfaces. In: Proceedings of the 2011 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2011. pp. 53-54.

In this paper, we propose a wearable sensor system that measures an angle of an elbow and position tapped by finger using bone-conducted sound. Our system consists of two microphones and a speaker, and they are attached on forearm. A novelty of this paper is to use active sensing for measuring an angle of an elbow. In this paper, active sensing means to emit sounds to a bone, and a microphone receives the sounds reflected at the elbow. The reflection of sound depends on the angle of elbow. Since frequencies of bone-conducted sound by tapping and from the speaker are different, these proposed techniques can be used simultaneously. We confirmed the feasibility of proposed system through experiments.
