Japanese scientists developed children robot: Human feelings successfully

The humanoid robots close to the fact are becoming increasingly popular. Finally, scientists in Japan have developed a child robot. Nikola was announced that the adroid robot has moving face muscles that enable the feelings of happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and revulsion feelings. The researchers said that other robots like Nikola and the like will move forward human well-being.

Researchers from the RIKEN GUARDian Robot Project in Japan developed an Android robot called Nikola, who can successfully express six basic emotion.

The new study published in Frontiers in Psychology has tested how well people are able to define the six facial expression (happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise and disgust) created by moving the "muscles" on Nikola's face. In this context, the quality of emotions revived by an Android, this was tested for the first time for six emotion and was verified.

However, the child robot is currently lacking a body, but also hopes that the developers can find a lot of usage areas in the near future. "Wato Sato, who manages the project," Androids that can communicate emotionally communicate with our old people will be useful in a wide variety of real life situations and will promote human well-being.

Sato has announced that Nikola contains six actuators that are used to control 29 pneumatic actuators and eyeball movements that control the movement of artificial muscles. These actuators are controlled by air pressure and provides' silent "movements.

On the other hand, scientists use Nikola, while the face movement has used a coding system called the encoding system (FACS). In this way, the humanoid robot can revive the six emotion by controlling fine movements such as "cheek stretching" and "lip shriveling".

At the same time, researchers also discovered how realistic of the relative speed of the different emotions of Nikola. For example, the expression of sadness realized more slowly than the statement of surprise.

On the other hand, scientists explained that Nikola in the short term may have believed that Nikola may have many practices in both social psychology and neuroscience.

Sato, "Compared to human allies, androids are good in controlling behaviors and can facilitate the rigorous experimental research of human social interactions."
