Aibo jukebox. a robot dance interactive experience
This paper presents a human-robot interaction system based on the Aibo platform. This robot is both, complex and empathetic enough to generate a high level of interest from the user. The complete system is an interactive JukeBox intending to generate affective participation, i.e., empathy, from the user towards the robot and its behavior. This application is based on a robotic dance control system that generates movements adequate to the music rhythm using a stochastic controller. The user can interact with the system selecting or providing the songs to be danced by the robot. The application has been successfully presented in different non-scientific scenarios.
